Seeking families to educate future healthcare professionals

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. 

To be eligible to participate, you must:

Be a past or current parent or legal guardian of a child with a disorder that affects multiple organ systems and requires some form of life supporting equipment.

Be a resident of West Virginia
