How CMC caregivers' experiences impact their emotional well-being is under-described. In this talk, we will review the existing literature, our team's current research, and plans for next steps to improve the health and well-being of this critical caregiver population,

North Star Reach Camp is Back Open!

After two years of the pandemic and suspended in-person camp programming, North Star Camp has reopened!

Children with serious health challenges and their families were especially impacted during the pandemic.. The safeguards that were meant to keep everyone safe have also left these children and families feeling isolated, alone, and even outcast. While we are now seeing the world making strides toward a post-pandemic society, those same families remain cautious about returning to the routines everyone else has been anxiously waiting for.
Camp is a place of community, connection, and inclusiveness. A place where families know that their child’s safety is first and foremost. A place where kids with serious health challenges can just be kids. This is a truly welcome change from their recent experiences. But you already knew that because you have been an important part of spreading the word and connecting kids and families to North Star Reach.
