About Direct Relief Fund

With the rise in stay at home orders and other safety measures since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a drastic fall in the number of U.S. children receiving routine vaccinations. This alarming decline in immunizations poses a dangerous risk to our children, because without these routine vaccinations throughout adolescence, there is increased potential for health complications down the road. Continued pediatric care is imperative to the healthy growth and development of our children.

Even something as simple as a routine visit with a pediatrician can already be an anxiety-provoking experience for kids. The AltaMed pediatrics team strives to improve the health of children while making a doctor’s visit as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. In pursuit of this goal, the AltaMed Foundation partners with Reach Out and Read, a national child’s literacy organization, to improve the experience of seeing a pediatrician while also benefiting patients’ education.
