Hurricane Michael – Resources for Recovery

Oct 13, 2018 | News

During this time of recovery following Hurricane Michael, FCAAP will stay in close communication with the American Academy of Pediatrics Disaster Preparedness Advisory Council (“AAP DPAC”) to secure and provide resources for the families, practices, and patients of Florida’s pediatricians. The AAP DPAC’s connections with federal agencies such as the CDC Children’s Preparedness Unit, the FEMA national children’s advisor, Save the Children, the American Red Cross, and Child Care Aware, will help FCAAP and its members during this recovery period. 

Resources will be posted on this website as they become available. Below are some resources that can be used immediately:   


New Resources:

Telemedicine companies staffed by pediatricians and who are already providing pediatric care in partnership with FL based organizations such as Nemours are offering free medical care for simple conditions to all those impacted by Hurricane Michael.  Many of our FCAAP pediatricians provide service to patients through one or more of the following:

  • MDLIVE  888-959-9516 and provide the code MICHAEL18 to schedule their initial consultation.
  • AmWell
  • Doctors on Demand enter the code HURRICANEMICHAEL to redeem a free visit with a medical physician
  • Teladoc

Details are available here.

Additional information on pediatric telehealth care is available from the AAP Section on Telehealth Care.
