Building Bridges in Children's Health (BBCH) was formed in response to one mother's experience in receiving medical care for her child, where she felt intimidated, bullied, and disrespected by medical personnel when trying to advocate for her child's needs.
She realized it was crucial to know her rights and be better prepared for communication with medical providers in order to be able to exercise her parental responsibility for her child's health.
Our mission is to form a community that will move beyond the culture of medical bullying, by equipping parents, nurses, and doctors with the knowledge of current science and law that will help them protect the health of their children and their pediatric patients.
Our goal is to help parents gain confidence in the health care choices they make and to encourage them to work with doctors who abide by the medical ethics of informed consent. We invite you to JOIN BBCH.
BBCH is a proud member of the Coalition for Informed Consent.
