The Hoekelman Center

The Hoekelman Center houses many activities. In addition to the original PLC, our faculty and staff also work on the following: Medicine-Pediatric Links with the Community (MPLC), Family Medicine Links with the Community (FMLC), Nurse Practitioner Links with the Community (NPLC), Community Pediatrics Advisory Council (CPAC), CARE Track, community projects, mentoring of fellows, editing the Pediatrics in the Community section of Pediatrics in Review, directing the national AAP Community Pediatrics Training Initiative, etc. 

Since the beginnings of PLC in 1996, we have been developing methods to train leaders in community health and advocacy. Through partnerships with community based organizations, our graduates have learned much and will do much to “make the world a better place to be.”
