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


We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
