As part of Shield HealthCare’s mission of service, we believe in supporting our communities in ways large and small. The formula shortage has affected many familes, but none more severely than those with medically-complex children who have tailored nutritional needs. Like most organizations, we acutely feel the strain of the continued formula shortage and are making every effort to provide essential supplies to our customers. Shield HealthCare’s clinical team of Registered Dietitians have been working tirelessly to support formula-dependent patients on a case-by-case basis. Recently, Registered Dietitian Kristin Sessums embodied Shield’s mission of service by partnering with Any Baby Can of San Anonio to help local families of children with special healthcare needs. Great job, Kristin!
