Title: Caring for Children from the Amish and Mennonite Communities

Session Overview: In this presentation we will discuss cultural considerations for providers, social workers, and others caring for pediatric patients and their families from Amish and traditional Mennonite (Plain) communities. In general, Plain people do not limit accessing care on religious grounds, however many face multiple barriers to traditional medical care and prefer complementary and alternative medicine when possible. To address these needs, the Plain community has supported multiple programs to provide population-specific healthcare, especially for those with complex medical needs or genetic disorders. While these programs are a resource for direct patient care, they are also are a means for support for providers caring for Plain community members at larger institutions.

Speakers: Katie Williams, MD, clinical instructor, Genetics & Metabolism, Department of Pediatrics, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health
