WU PAARC is a practice-based research network of community pediatric healthcare providers associated with Washington University. Established in 2002, we are a community of scientifically-curious providers focused on primary care. Together, we identify and address gaps in knowledge about prevention, diagnosis and management of pediatric diseases. WU PAARC members are interested in finding answers to medical questions they encounter on a daily basis that are relevant to community pediatric care.
WU PAARC is an Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS) core and an arm of the ICTS Center for Community-Engaged Research, which fosters partnerships between academic institutions, health providers and the community.
