An Advocate for Children's Health

The mission of the Public Policy and External Affairs Department is to enhance child health advocacy at Miami Children's Hospital. This office collaborates its efforts with our friends and colleagues in the community to reach out to local, state and federal officials in order to educate and create awareness on the need for, and importance of quality healthcare for children.

In keeping with that mission, our office has created the Miami Children's Hospital Children's Advocacy Network.

Our department is also responsible for:

  • Serving as a resource on legislative and regulatory issues that affect children's health
  • Representing MCH and staff in organizations that support the health and well-being of children
  • Coordinating grassroots advocacy efforts within the hospital community
  • Working with other organizations to support the health and well-being of children
