The Work We're Doing

Our mission is to improve access and health equity for all of Montana’s children. We are constantly looking for problems to solve, communities to serve, and barriers to overcome. These are some examples of the meaningful, innovative, and dedicated work of our collaborative and supportive partners.

  • Fort Peck Project

    With the leadership of the Fort Peck Tribes’ Health Promotion and Disease Prevention (HPDP) program as well as funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation we are supporting HPDP in bringing the highest quality, most accessible and most culturally relevant pediatric care to those they serve.

  • Type 1 Diabetes Diagnosis and Treatment Research

    There are an estimated 500 children in Montana with type 1 diabetes (T1D), a chronic disease that is time and resource-intensive for families, schools and communities and requires subspecialist expertise. We have launched a study to learn more about the diagnosis and treatment experiences of pediatric T1D patients in the state, which in spirit of collaboration, will inform our work with specialists across Montana for the creation of Shared Plans of Care for every child, remote monitoring technology as desired, and 24/7 access to primary care via telemedicine from home or school with pediatric endocrinology consultation as well.

  • Rural Complex Care Coordination

    With the support of the Rural Institute at the University of Montana, we are participating in the first cohort of Boston Childrens’ Care Coordination Academy. Our diverse team hopes to gain knowledge and skills to better implement and measure pediatric care coordination efforts across Montana.
