We are well supported by the genetics and pediatric subspecialists attached to the Advocate Children’s Hospital. Our members participate in multiple undergraduate and graduate medical education programs while caring for an incredibly diverse patient population. We have initiated programs aimed at maternal conditions such as adult congenital cardiac disease and diabetes as well as complex obstetric issues.
