Mia Matthews is the M in DMC. Mia is tenacious, fearless, and compassionate. She’s a native of Baltimore Maryland and has a Masters Degree in Public Health from Liberty University. After the loss of her beautiful daughter Channing, Mia began advocating for kids with complex medical needs. In fact, there’s currently a legislative bill that Mia is fighting to getting passed that will demand in home nurses to undergo a rigorous training to assist children with medical complex needs. Currently there are NO specific trainings for in home nurses. We are praying to have Channing’s Law passed in the 2022 legislative session. She serves on the Johns Hopkins Pediatric Family Advisory Committee, Mount Washington Hospital Family Advisory Committee, Board Member at PACT: Daycare for Children with Special Needs and the Global Tracheostomy Collaborative Patient and Family Committee. Mia’s goal is to help adults become sustainable individuals by strengthening their mental state. When she’s not out helping others, she enjoys spending time with her husband and son.
