Peggy Modaff, MS, CGC, a distinguished clinical genetic counselor in the department of pediatrics and clinic coordinator of the Bone Dysplasia Clinic, was selected to serve on the medical advisory board for the non-profit organization Little People of America (LPA). “Peggy is an ideal candidate for the medical advisory board.” Says Janet Legare, MD, a pediatrician, and clinic director of the Bone Dysplasia Clinic. “She has worked with families with skeletal dysplasias for 25 years and is an invaluable member of the Bone Dysplasia Clinic.” Legare nominated Modaff to serve on the board.
LPA is a national organization that provides support and information to people with dwarfism and their families. They offer, “information on employment, education, disability rights, adoption, medical issues, clothing, adaptive products, and the many stages of parenting a short-statured child – from birth to adult.”
The medical advisory board is an interprofessional and interdisciplinary team that helps improve the quality of life for people with dwarfism throughout their lives while celebrating with great pride Little People’s contributions to social diversity.
