Landon Pediatric Foundation Scholars

The Landon Pediatric Foundation actively seeks out and develops funding sources to provide educational opportunities for professionals that will benefit the children of Ventura County.
Support from the Ventura County Health Care Agency has allowed us to sponsor four post graduate fellows who have gone on to establish a multidisciplinary diabetes team, form a maternal and child HIV clinic, direct a rural health center with telemedicine consultation, and to develop a rural family practice. With the support of Genentech and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation we have sent our team to regional and international Cystic Fibrosis meetings. The California Wellness Foundation has helped to sponsor the participation of our crackerjack administrative assistant in the Coco's Breakfast Clubtrative assistant in the Coco's Breakfast Club - a weekly meeting of Hispanic leaders in law enforcement, Job Corps, California Conservation Corps, FBI, and Public Housing. The Landon Pediatric Foundation provided tuition scholarships for the inpatient Pediatric Service nurses to attend a regional pediatric conference in San Francisco,a family practice resident to travel to Honduras to assist in our Cleft Lip and Palate Outreach efforts, and a Board member to a regional Children's Conference in Seattle. Through the generous sponsorship of American Biosystems, the Epidemiologic Study of Cystic Fibrosis, and Abt and Associates we have established a Respiratory Scholar who has helped to establish a regional asthma consortium and worked with us to demonstrate a new compassionate use of a technologic method of moving mucus out of the lungs of patients with cerebral palsy preventing hospitalization for pneumonia.  One of our original scholars has been utilized as a consultant by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Georgetown University, and the California Reinvestment Project among many others.
