The Metabolism Service at Boston’s Floating Hospital for Children has launched the METABOLISM OUTREACH SERVICE

This innovative program represents the largest and most comprehensive program to date to educate medical students and physicians about metabolic disease. At this time, it serves 6 academic medical centers in the northeastern U.S., and provides:
  • Seminars & workshops about metabolic disease and abnormal test findings
  • Opportunities for patients/families to help teach medical students and doctors
  • Consultative assistance to physicians as they assess their patients
  • Long distance support for these medical centers during more urgent situations
Participating centers include:
  • Boston Medical Center - Boston
  • Baystate Medical Center - Springfield, MA
  • Vermont Children's Hospital - Burlington, VT
  • Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center - Lebanon, NH
  • Eastern Maine Medical Center - Bangor, ME
  • Maimonides Medical Center - Brooklyn, NY

If you are interested in speaking to a medical audience as part of the Metabolic Outreach Service, or if you will allow your/your child’s record to be reviewed and used as a teaching case (anonymously) during an Outreach workshop, please let us know!
