The Kansas City Infectious Diseases Community Coalition Board is a partnership between academic researchers, patients, parents, health care providers, health service organizations, and community organizations. The goal of the collaborative is to plan, design, and disseminate effective interventions to increase immunization rates among children and adolescents in the Kansas City area.
Our mission is to reduce preventable infectious diseases, increase pediatric immunization rates, and improve health outcomes for all children and young adults in the Greater Kansas City metropolitan community through education, investigation, and advocacy.
This collaborative was made possible by the Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute's (PCORI) Pipeline to Proposal award. This work is not supported by pharmaceutical industries.
