"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
Physician-Parent Caregivers (PPC) was created by one mother after her inability to obtain safe and quality health care for her own daughter when she became critically ill.
PPC is the first and only national charitable organization exclusively devoted to advancing the quality of care and quality of life for young adults with chronic conditions. After discovering that this population is not recognized, we made a commitment to raising awareness on their behalf
PPC is a volunteer expert board run organization. We are grateful to the cadre of board members, physicians, policy experts, organizations parents and young adults who invested their time and energy to conduct a stakeholder and systems analysis in medicine, government and health policy over the past decade. Our quest is to see that Young Invisibles have quality health care and quality life.
Advancing quality health care and quality of life for young adults with chronic health conditions.
