Here’s Who We’re Following on Twitter
Also known as the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health, LPFCH uses its Twitter account to share research and news related to children’s health. Additionally, this NCG member tweets about Kidscal Updates, their weekly digest about children’s health events in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties, and Kidsdata Advisories, which raise the visibility of children’s issues in California.
