NEEDS STATEMENTMentalization Based Treatment (MBT) is a therapeutic approach rooted in attachment theory and psychodynamic principles, focusing on enhancing individuals' capacity for mentalizing – the ability to understand and interpret one's own and others' thoughts, feelings, and intentions. MBT has been adapted for use with adolescents to address their unique developmental challenges and emotional needs.
NEEDS STATEMENTThere is an inevitable tendency of specialists to restrict their life-long medical education to topics germane to their own subspecialty. This is to the detriment of their patients who can only benefit from their physicians familiarity with evolving trends in diagnosis and treatment across multiple medical subspecialties. Gas and Gasoline, and MD Motorheads, seek to bring together sub specialists from a variety of disciples in an effort to cross-educate in evolving trends in diagnosis and treatments.

NEEDS STATEMENTInequalities in genetic services for the care of Hispanic children with rare diseases living along the Texas-Mexico border has long been a major health concern. Rare genetic diseases are frequently disabling and often reduce life expectancy, either causing early childhood death, life-threatening medical complications, and/or chronic neurodevelopmental problems. Lack of knowledge of the front-line healthcare providers regarding ascertainment and evaluation of genetic diseases is a critical barrier in providing timely diagnoses to children in this population.

Physicians for Human Rights An Introduction to Forensic Documentation of Trauma: Evaluating Survivors of Torture and Ill Treatment
Needs StatementThousands of survivors of human rights abuses seek humanitarian protection in the U.S. annually, relying on personal narratives of abuse to support claims to asylum. Medical legal documentation of physical and psychological sequelae of abuse by health professionals trained in the forensic evaluation of asylum seekers offers significant support to survivors' asylum claims. However, the need for evaluations exceeds the number of providers trained to perform them.
