Cumberland Pediatric Foundation connects the pediatric community
May 28, 2014
For over 20 years, Cumberland Pediatric Foundation (CPF) has worked closely with the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and other partners to improve the quality, increase the efficiency, and lower the cost of pediatric health care services.
Through these partnerships, CPF provides its 600-plus members and their staff with trusted educational resources, discounts and support. We provide monthly continuing medical education seminars, monthly office manager roundtables, ICD-10 training, coding training, and many social events to provide a networking opportunity between Vanderbilt and community pediatricians. CPF is dedicated to supporting the education of Vanderbilt pediatric residents and medical students. CPF sponsors the annual resident picnic, supports a resident mentor program, hosts collaborative events between the Vanderbilt specialists, residents, and community practices, and provides other educational sponsorships to Vanderbilt and community partners.
CPF is involved in research and grants with the focus of promoting the health and wellness of children. Our current study is in partnership with Dr Sean Donahue with the Vanderbilt Eye Institute. This study primarily aims to evaluate the effectiveness of the SPOT vision screening device in the community practice setting.
The Cumberland Pediatric Foundation is governed by a board of directors comprised of Vanderbilt physicians and Community pediatricians. Through our work and commitment to growing strong partnerships we are connecting the pediatric community and ultimately improving the healthcare of children.
