About TPPCC

Optimizing quality of life for Texas children

The Texas Pediatric Palliative Care Consortium (TPPCC) was established in 2007 to provide children living with life-threatening conditions and their families with the best quality of life possible, regardless of care setting, family demographics, or financial status.

TPPCC is a statewide coalition of interdisciplinary pediatric palliative care providers, as well as advocates and parent representatives. If you are a palliative care provider, consider joining us today. Join TPPCC.
