CHOP’s Intestinal Rehabilitation Program is offering a new series of monthly support groups for parents and patients! These groups offer a welcoming hour for support and an opportunity for families to connect with one another as they manage the unique challenges in caring for their child's complex needs. Families can learn ways to manage the stress surrounding their child's diagnosis or medical condition and offer tips/guidance to other parents. Patient groups give children the opportunity to meet peers who are also navigating the challenges of short bowel, in a fun and engaging way!
Groups are offered virtually and are facilitated by IRP Social Worker, Meghan Miano, LSW and Psychologist, Dr. Lauren Fussner. Look out for monthly invitations with details via email. For additional information or support, please call IRP Social Worker, Meghan Miano at 267-426-3981.
