Message from VCHIP's Executive Director
Welcome to VCHIP!
Within these pages you will find some of the most innovative work taking place in our State to improve the quality of health care for children and their families.
VCHIP is actively collaborating on several health care quality improvement projects locally and nationally. Our work impacts many areas of child health, including child development, newborn and childhood preventive services, ADHD, asthma, foster care, prenatal care, opiate-exposed newborn care and adolescent health.
In collaboration with the Vermont Department of Health and The University of Vermont Medical Center, VCHIP continues to partner with the American Academy of Pediatrics- Vermont Chapter and the Department of Vermont Health Access (DVHA) to develop and plan future initiatives, as well as support current projects.
In addition, VCHIP works closely with numerous organizations in Vermont (see our collaborators), who share and support our vision for improved health care for children and their families.
The inspiration we receive from our dedicated partners continues to strengthen the work we do. It is our pleasure to be affiliated with such an impressive and steadfast group who share our passion for making the world a better place for children and their families. We thank our partners and look forward to our continued work together.
We invite you to learn more about our initiatives through our website and contact us if you are interested in participating or becoming involved in any way.
