Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The purpose of the F2F Connection project is to facilitate access to relevant electronic health information resources for families that have children with chronic illnesses and/or disabilities. The project is a collaborative effort involving the Houston Academy of Medicine-Texas Medical Center Library, Texas Woman's University, and Family to Family Network. Family to Family Network (F2FN) works with family, professionals, and friends of children with disabilities and/or chronic illnesses to create communities where all children belong and excel. F2FN provides information and referral services, educational programs, and direct support to this community. In addition to local programming in the greater Houston, Texas area, F2FN operates a statewide training program developed for people who are committed to helping families of children with special needs. The F2F Connection project builds on existing strengths of its partners.
