    Thursday, July 9, 2020

    The West Virginia Family-to-Family Health Information Center (F2F-HIC) would like to invite past and current parents/caregivers of children with special health care needs to serve as parent team members for the WVU Project DOCC (Delivery of Chronic Care). In these virtual simulations for students from the School of Medicine, School of Nursing, and School of Pharmacy, trained parent team members share their caregiving experiences and their personal journey in receiving medical care. After participating in a 60-minute online WVUCED Parent Team training course, parents/caretakers will be eligible to co-facilitate with WVU faculty from the comfort of their own home in presenting live 2-hour virtual experiences for WVU learners and future medical professionals. Parent team members are provided a stipend of $60 each time they participate.

  • Gee calls on higher ed to create necessary dialogues, asks WVU community to lean on Mountaineer values in wake of Floyd, ‘countless’ other Black deaths

    Wednesday, June 3, 2020

    The West Virginia University Center for Excellence in Disabilities (WVU CED) strives to effectively represent the diverse network that is the Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD). In doing so, our mission is to serve people with disabilities and their families regardless of age, gender, color, sexual orientation, or any other factor that may be used as a divisive tool in our society. The direct services, research, training, and information we share are designed to create equity and improved health for all. What we stand for strongly opposes recent police brutality, killings and other violence across our country. We recognize this is not a reflection of all and we accept the opportunity to contribute to the change that must take place in all levels of our society.
