2020 Conference Webinars

Caring for the Caregivers



The Children's Palliative Care Coalition of Michigan has hosted a statewide conference every November for the last 5 years.  With the unfortunate circumstances we all find ourselves in these days due to Covid-19, we are not able to put on a large group meeting in East Lansing this year. In its place we will be hosting a 4-part series of interactive webinars centered on the theme Caring for the Caregivers. 

The Webinar series began in September, and will be held once each month for the remainder of 2020. The registration fee is $30/session for Coalition members and $35 for non-members, or you may attend all four sessions for $75/members or $90/ nonmembers.  Scholarships are available for families to participate at no cost. These scholarships are made possible, in part, by our generous event sponsors. To request a scholarship, send an email to admin@childpalliative.org. More information can be found at this registration link.
