A Medical Home for All Ages

Today, there are two to three times as many adults as children with cerebral palsy (CP). Adults with CP face unique challenges that often require specialized care: pain management, mobility problems, and aging-related conditions, such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. The Weinberg Family Cerebral Palsy Center serves as a medical home for patients of all ages through integrated, coordinated, and continuous care across the life span.

About the Weinberg Family Cerebral Palsy Center:

The Weinberg Family Cerebral Palsy Center is the first program dedicated to transitional care for cerebral palsy (CP) on the East Coast. It provides integrated, coordinated, and multidisciplinary health care that includes pediatric, transitional, and adult care.

Through education, research, and advocacy, our growing network of cerebral palsy experts aims to expand knowledge of CP and access to care across the lifespan. We collaborate with our patients and their families to help people of all ages with CP to manage their symptoms and reach their full potential—building a bridge for lifetime care, together.

What your gift will help support

The Center was created with a three–pronged mission:

  1. to provide outstanding, multidisciplinary care to patients with CP throughout their lifespans,
  2. to educate and train the medical community and families about lifetime care for CP, and
  3. to sponsor research devoted to improving care.
Your gift will help support each of these important initiatives.

Why support the Weinberg Family Cerebral Palsy Center?

In addition to excellence in patient care, the Center is dedicated to providing education and training for the medical community and families through conferences, workshops, and materials about lifetime care for cerebral palsy. It also sponsors research devoted to improvements in CP care and is the first medical institution in the country to establish a comprehensive patient registry to lay the foundation for research, new discoveries, and innovative treatments.

Your generosity means a great deal to all the patients, families, doctors, and staff who call the Center their home.
