Medical Advisory Committee

Recognizing the importance of our close alliance with our community's pediatric community, in 2013,  Daystar established its Medical Advisory Committee to help provide relevant professional and technical support to Daystar Kids on issues related to the provision of pediatric healthcare services to its program participants. The Advisory Committee reflects a broad spectrum of multi-disciplinary pediatric and speciality medical practitioners. The group meets regularly and provides invaluable guidance on best practices, and provides training and support for Daystar’s clinical nursing program.
