PROKids Team Recruits Parent and Youth Advisory Boards

Elizabeth Cox, MD, PhD, and her PROKids team have recruited Parent and Youth Advisory Boards as part of their ICTR-funded work, “Family-Centered Tailoring of Pediatric Diabetes Self-Management Resources.” In collaboration with the UW School of Nursing’s Wisconsin Network for Research Support (WINRS), led by Dr. Barb Bowers, these advisors will be trained to provide advice throughout the life of the research project and potentially beyond. The boards are comprised of 12 parents, 6 children ages 8-12 and 6 teens ages 13-16. The advisory boards are facilitated by members of WINRS and the AFCH Child Life Services team.
