We had two Regional conferences in 2014 and they were so successful, we are repeating the effort in 2015. The 1-day Regional conferences are similar to our Annual Statewide Conference but located around Texas with fewer sessions and other activities.

TxP2P provides a medical residency educational opportunity for Pediatric and Family Practice Residents and other medical professionals to learn more about the global affects of having a child with a chronic illness or disability in a family. To provide a glimpse of family life, a diverse group of trained volunteer parents invite residents into their lives to experience first-hand how they meet the challenge of raising a child with special health care needs. Simultaneously, our volunteer families learn more about how doctors and other professionals develop early in their careers. Through this opportunity, TxP2P hopes to foster communication skills that create collaboration and mutual respect between patients, families, doctors, and other treating professionals as well as improve care for all children with special health care needs.

TxP2P offers training, resources and support for parents, family members, professionals, and community members, to better support children with disabilities or special health care needs throughout their lives. Trainings and presentations in English and Spanish are available at no charge to professionals, parents, and parent groups across Texas. See our Family To Family page.
