Shriners Hospital in Chicago is offering a 2-day in-person educational and support opportunity to primary caregivers (i.e. parents) of youth with spinal cord injuries ages 7-12. Youth must have sustained their injury at least one year ago and both the primary caregiver and child must speak fluent English. All travel, hotel accommodations, and meals will be taken care of by us.
Unfortunately, we must limit this to one caregiver (the “primary” caregiver) of each child for this study.
This program (“Parent Forum”) will be offered during two weekends in August:
•August 2-3, 2014 OR
•August 16-17, 2014
Parents/caregivers are only being asked to attend one of these Parent Forums and it’s their choice! Both weekend programs are exactly the same – we’re just offering two weekend options to accommodate busy schedules.
