Harvard Child Health Expert Praises Child Health Services

(MANCHESTER, NH) -- What does an orange mean?To former client Cindy Lafond, it epitomizes the care and concern that Child Health Services has been showing families since it opened thirty-four years ago.

Ms. Lafond spoke at Child Health Services 7th annual breakfast, Morning Matters, held at the Radisson on May 7th.She gave a moving account and expressed gratitude for the care her four children received from the Pediatric Clinic and Special Medical Programs. When CindyҒs children were young, those oranges were a surprise from Child Health Services founder, Dr. Selma Deitch, after learning that Cindy couldn't afford the oranges and juice that her children craved.

Over 300 guests enjoyed the breakfast event. They listened as Judith Palfrey, MD, T. Berry Brazelton Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and Director of the Global Pediatrics Program at Boston Children's Hospital, spoke about providing quality care for children with special health care needs and praised Child Health Services for integrating special needs care into the medical home.

At the annual Morning Matters, hundreds of business and non-profit leaders, government officials, educators, and community members gather to learn about evidence-based practices and to generate vital revenue for improving the health and well-being of disadvantaged children.  Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD) and The Harbor Group were the 2014 lead sponsors.

Child Health Services is a non-profit, pediatric health clinic caring for at-risk children.  Since 1980, it has provided comprehensive medical, nutrition, and social services to children from low-income families and specialized care to children with special medical needs.
