KIDS UP (Upper Peninsula of Michigan)

Youth Members iCAN Research 2019 Summit.

Welcome to iCAN KIDS UP!


KIDS UP is pleased to join iCAN Research as one of their chapter groups. Starting in early 2019, the Klein family, (formerly of KIDS Florida) moved to the upper peninsula of Michigan. Immediately realizing a need for children living in the north to be able to share their stories, a chapter was created.   

"What makes our iCAN KIDS UP Chapter Great"

Exploring the multiple opportunities for children to advocate and participate with pediatric healthcare, research, innovation and science, the chapter is focusing on reaching many rural northern families to share their expertise of living both with and without chronic conditions.
