Hope Grows: Virtual Support for Caregivers of Medically Complex Children

Hosted by Hope Grows.

Hope Grows has teamed up with a Pittsburgh Schweitzer Fellowship Awardee, Peyton Groves. She is currently a medical student at the University of Pittsburgh. For her fellowship, she has created a new support group for caregivers!

This virtual support is offered for caregivers of medically complex children on the 3rd Monday of each month, from 6:00-7:30 pm.

***Medical complexity is defined by multi-organ involvement in chronic health conditions, ongoing use of medical technology (like tracheotomies or wheelchairs), high resource use, and a variety of other health factors.***

If you are interested in learning more about the group and whether it might be a good fit for you and your family, please reach out to Peyton Groves at groves.peyton@medstudent.pitt.edu.
