Molly Gatto is the Director of Program Services at Make-A-Wish Philadelphia and Susquehanna Valley. Make-A-Wish Philadelphia and Susquehanna Valley serves 10 counties within southeastern Pennsylvania. Fulfilling a child's wish provides a joyful and meaningful experience that benefits both the child and the family. She was formerly the founding Program Director for the Medical Home Initiative (MHI) at the PA Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. The mission of the MHI program is to enhance the quality of life for children with special health care needs through recognition and support of families as the central caregivers for their child, effective community-based coordination and communication, and improved primary health care. The MHI has established a training program for primary care providers and their office staffs on how to create a medical home.
