The Latino/Hispanic Family Advisory
Board (Consejo) was created from a collaboration
of staff who recognized the importance of formally including the
voice of Spanish-speaking families in hospital improvement. The
Consejo compliments the existing Family Advisory Board
(FAB), an English-speaking parent advisory group for the
hospital. A group of parents were identified through various
hospital employees and clinic areas to be a part of a brainstorming
session to determine the resources necessary for such a group.
The first meeting took place at the Ronald McDonald House Community
Room with 8 parents present. Several of the parents who were part
of the initial group remain on the Consejo at this time.
The Consejo meets monthly
and any parent, or caregiver, of a patient may apply for
membership to the group. Please direct questions and interested
persons to the e-mail below for more information.
