Autoimmune conditions can profoundly affect the emotional, mental and social health of children and their families. The Samara Jan Turkel Clinical Center at Boston Children's offers a number of services to help families cope with these issues including:

  • a psychologist for children being seen in the clinic with special attention to developmental and social issues often overlooked in children with chronic medical conditions.

  • information concerning national support groups and other resources

  • participation in small group discussions for children with certain diagnoses with other patients their age


The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
