The Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics Research Network (DBPNet) Expands

December 18, 2014

The Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics Research Network (DBPNet) is excited to announce the recent addition of two new associate member sites to the network. The network welcomed Doug Vanderbilt from Children's Hospital Los Angeles and Sandra Friedman from Children's Hospital Colorado. The DBPNet Steering Committee is very excited to have both sites in the network.

The DBPNet is developing a Parent Advisory Group, under the guidance of the Network Coordinating Center's Family Advisory Steering Committee Representative, Amy Kratchman from The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. This group is being established to provide the network with a family centered perspective in the review and development of new protocols and other network activities. The network has accepted the first round of applications and will develop both a Parent Advisory Group and a "Friends of the Network" group. These groups will begin meeting in early 2015.

The Network is also proud to of the most recent acceptance to publication in Academic Pediatrics.
