Children's Board at Columbia

Inspired Care for Kids

Our board includes parents, former patients, donors, physicians and surgeons, faculty members, and representatives from an array of professions. We all share the common bond of a close personal commitment to ColumbiaDoctors Children’s Health and believe that, like many of us, families will find the medical answers they are seeking here.

The Children's Board at Columbia proudly supports pediatric programs that every day make a difference in the lives of children and provide them with care through any illness or injury.

Our mission is to serve as advocates, advisors, and ambassadors for a broad range of children’s programs at Columbia University Irving Medical Center and dedicate our support to initiatives that continue to advance the goals of ColumbiaDoctors Children’s Health to provide children and adolescents with the finest cutting-edge care – delivered with compassion and understanding – and providing access to new research, treatments, and therapies to improve pediatric care here and worldwide.

If you're interested in joining our board, contact Regina Roper, Executive Director, Development, Columbia University Irving Medical Center, at 212-304-7227 or
