The Community Outreach staff are committed to helping our community raise happy, healthy families. We offer educational classes and programs for parents, children and teens, coaches and professionals, and host an annual chronic illness school-based conference. Thanks to a
grant from Kohl’s department stores, we are able to provide additional outreach to our schools and sponsor
local and national speakers to present on timely topics that enhance the
well-being of all families.
Sam Fabian, community outreach program manager, oversees and coordinates CHKD
