Following a rigorous review of applications conducted by an independent committee, Kids' Health Links Foundation is pleased to award its 2015 Research Grant to the Hospital for Sick Children, which will lead this collaborative research initiative that includes SickKids (Toronto), Holland Bloorview Rehabilitation Hospital (Toronto) and IWK Health Centre (Halifax, NS). The primary objective of this research grant is to increase the literature base examining the use of online support networks by chronically ill youth aged 10-18 years of age. The research study will begin in October 2015 and conclude in October 2016.
