For Families, Kids, Teens
A chance to learn
HACA and the Children’s National HTC are working together to host an infusion/injection workshop for families, kids and teens on Saturday, May 14. The workshop will take place at the Fairlington Community Center from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
The event will kick off with some videos: a greeting from new nurse coordinator Elle Levy (who will not be able to attend in person), an infusion instruction video, and an injection instruction video. There will also be some teens on hand that will demonstrate self-infusion or self-injection skills.
We will then have stations where participants can practice on dummy arms, working with infusion nurses. Child life specialists will be on hand to sit with the younger children where they can “practice” on dolls or stuffed animals.
Lunch will be served between noon and 1 p.m.
