The Parent Mentor Program was established to formally provide new families with support from other families with children with PKU.
Infant Starter Kits, valued at over $150, are provided to families of newly diagnosed infants with PKU in Washington State. The Starter Kit includes a PKU PAL, a scale for weighing and measuring formula and food, a Low Protein Food List for PKU, the Low Protein Cookery for PKU cookbook, and a can of infant formula. The PAG appreciates donations to help cover the costs of the Infant Starter Kits.
Science Night is intended to provide families with up-to-date scientific information about PKU, as well as an opportunity to build parent involvement. Take a look at past events:
Camp Sealth provides an opportunity for children who receive care from the University of Washington PKU Clinic to attend a Campfire Boys and Girls camp on Vashon Island. The PAG secures scholarships for campers and donations of low protein foods.
