Pediatrics – SPARK Center
For Medical Professionals
Refer a Patient
Because The SPARK Center is a unique program, children must ‘qualify’ or be referred from specific sources. We care for medically and emotionally involved children; therefore we take referrals from local hospitals and state agencies.
Research & Grant-Funded Projects
Members of The SPARK Center staff are actively engaged in both local and international research endeavors aimed at reducing the risk of HIV infection, enhancing children’s adaptation to HIV/AIDS, and finding the most effective prevention and intervention programs to curb the spread of the disease, in particular among ethnic minority groups.
Included is a list of selected publications.
SPARK has established international partnerships with several organizations serving orphans and vulnerable children (OVCs) affected by HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa.
