Community Involvement and Charity
Cockerell and McIntosh Pediatrics has been a part of Eastern Jackson County for over 60 years, and our commitment to service extends far beyond the patients we serve. Apart from providing quality healthcare to children, we strive to give back to the communities that surround our Blue Springs and Independence offices. Cockerell and McIntosh Pediatrics has supported several area organizations - including the Boys and Girls Clubs, Alex's Lemonade Stand, Reach Out and Read (ROR), Midwest Foster Care and Adoption Association (MFCAA), the Child Abuse Prevention Association (CAPA), and the Independence School District's Extreme School Makeover project. In addition, our practice has been a title sponsor for the Nighthawk Flight 5K, which benefits Nativity of Mary School. Cockerell and McIntosh Pediatrics has also made its resources available for educational purposes. Our office has been a place of learning for student nurses, medical residents and pediatric nurse practitioners.
On an individual level, our staff has also been very involved supporting the community and other charitable causes outside of work. Their support has been extended to Alex's Lemonade Stand, DOCARE International, Community Services League and Susan G. Komen, to name a few.
Please take some time to learn a little more about some of the programs and causes that we have supported over the years.

Reach Out and Read Did you know that we will give your child a free new book at all well visits from birth to age 5 years? Our office participates with Reach Out and Read (ROR), a national program that promotes reading in order to help children succeed in school. We also have used books for siblings, books in the waiting room and exam rooms, and volunteers who are available on occasion to read to your child before your appointment. Sharing books with babies and children daily will help them feel loved, help their brains grow, improve their attention span and prepare them for kindergarten. If you would like more information about the Reach Out and Read program, visit reachoutandreadkc.org.
Alex's Lemonade Stand Pediatric cancer is the number one killer of children by disease in this country, more than all other diseases combined. In the United States alone, two classrooms full of children are diagnosed with cancer each day. Alex's Lemonade Stands for pediatric cancer research are held the first part of June in Kansas City every year. Dr. Mozer and his family started the stands in Kansas City in 2004 due to their experience with childhood cancer. Dr. Mozer's now 14 year old son, Jacob, is a childhood cancer survivor. With the help of over 800 volunteers running the 26 lemonade stands and the generosity of the people of Kansas City, these stands have raised over $500,000 for pediatric cancer research. Most of the funds come back to the area in the form of research grants. To find out more about Alex's Lemonade Stand, to make a donation, or to volunteer, please check out their website at alexslemonade.org/mypage/5275.
