iCAN Community: Share Your Voice

Moms, Dads, Grandparents, Kids, Community Members: #PTN and #DCRI want to help you become a published author or artist.

If you could go back in time and tell yourself what you know now about research, what would you say? The #PTNiCANAnthology is being created to illustrate the importance of pediatric clinical research. We hope that the anthology will serve as a useful education tool for families that have children in clinical research, as well as the children who are participating. Electronic versions of the anthology will be shared freely online with pediatric participants and families as they begin their clinical research experience.

Submit any of the following:

  • Personal essays

  • Illustrations

  • Short stories

  • Poems

  • Electronic art

  • Photographs

Maximum word length of 10,000 words; No minimum length

Email your submissions directly to Amy Ohmer at
