CPERL Welcomes Lilyanna Patton

Lily working at CPERL

We are excited to welcome Lilyanna Patton to the CPERL team!


Lily is a first-year UIC E-OTD student and part of the Children, Youth and Families Scholarship of Practice Collaborative. She will be involved in our ongoing NSF-funded project and will be assisting with project management as we head into our community-based pragmatic trial in partnership with Rocky Mountain Human Services (RMHS) in 2024.


Lily shares: As an E-OTD student exploring opportunities to grow and engage in meaningful work, I was drawn to CPERL’s mission of developing tools to enhance pediatric (re)habilitation. I am passionate about pediatric and family-centered care and am inspired by the work of CPERL. I am confident that being part of the team at CPERL will be an enriching experience where I can learn from the members and contribute to the field and its growing research.


We are eager to dive into this work with Lily and the meaningful contributions she will make during her time in CPERL!
