Aligning Your Family's Overall Wellness

As families strive to obtain what their children need to regain their health, they often neglect to maintain overall wellness for our entire family. This session will provide families with the tools to coordinate their family's overall wellness and how to build a necessary foundation of collaboration with treating medical professionals and other providers to ensure desired health needs and benefits are achieved. Additionally, attendees will learn how to navigate the system of care, including for individuals receiving supports via Medicaid, for choice and the maximum beneficial outcomes for the entire family.
