Pam Miklavcic, PhD
The Davies Project grew out of Dr. Miklavcic's work with the Children's Health Initiative. As Director, she brought the community's attention to the need for MSU and Sparrow Hospital to work together to co-locate the subspecialty clinics, so families could take their children to one easy-to-reach location for their treatments, tests, and appointments. By focusing on transportation as the project's first goal, Davies Project volunteers supply rides while building relationships with families. Both interventions will encourage appointment compliance while helping families break through the significant isolation they experience when caring for a chronically ill child. Dr. Miklavcic has made, and continues to work for, substantive, significant improvements in the quality of pediatric health care in our community.
