Focus Group: Return to School after Bone Marrow Transplant

Join our Focus Group Regarding the Return to School After Bone Marrow Transplant Process

If you are a healthcare or school professional involved in the care and support of pediatric BMT survivors when they return to in-person school post-transplant, we would like you to join this study. We aim to engage healthcare and school professionals in a focus group setting to subsequently develop and test a pilot return to school supportive intervention.
