    The Emily Stillman Foundation

    The Emily Stillman Foundation was created in 2014 in memory of Emily Nicole Stillman. Emily was a beautiful 19 year old sophomore at Kalamazoo College when in February of 2013 she died within 36 hours of developing a headache resulting from Serogroup B of Meningococcal Disease. The mission of The Emily Stillman Foundation is twofold. First we resolve to raise awareness and encourage organ/tissue donation. Second, we resolve to raise awareness of all strains of meningococcal disease and other vaccine preventable diseases. We will accomplish this through ongoing education and organized vaccination programs. The goal of The Foundation is to create a world where all vaccine preventable diseases are eradicated and there is no longer a "waiting list" for those in need of an organ transplant.

The department also operates specialized programs designed to treat the unique needs of its patients.

    The Center for Autism and Developmental Disabilities provides diagnostic evaluations, specialized therapy, and a medical home standard of care. Let’s Get Healthy!, the department’s wellness program, uses a multidisciplinary approach to educate families as they reshape their thinking regarding food, nutrition, and exercise. The largely grant funded School-Based and Community Health Program operates a number of health centers and other wellness programs located in several Detroit area public schools with the goal of reducing barriers, such as access and cost, to primary medical and behavioral health care.

    All of the Pediatrics Department ambulatory clinics and school-based health centers offer free immunizations to eligible patients through the Vaccines for Children Program. Medical staff operate under the premise of “no missed opportunities” when it comes to preventive care, which includes an assessment of patients’ immunization needs at every visit. The school-based health centers coordinate with their partnering schools to identify students who are at risk of school exclusion and work with those families to get their children up-to-date with all needed vaccines.
