    We want to hear the voices of Siblings of children with TID!

    Researchers, from Palo Alto University, with the approval of the institutional IRB, are conducting a study to learn about the impact of various forms of support on quality of life for parents and siblings of children and adolescents with diabetes; as well as, the psychosocial effect felt by the siblings. The investigators are Wendy Packman, JD, PhD, Breanna Gentile, M.A., & Heather E. Preston, B.A.

    Who can participate?
    Children, ages 6-17 years, whose sibling has been diagnosed with Type I Diabetes. For households with more than 1 sibling, the sibling that is closest in age to the child with Type I Diabetes will be given preference.

    Parents or caregivers with a child who has been diagnosed with Type I Diabetes.

    What to expect:
    1. If you choose to participate, you and your child will be asked to complete a series of questionnaires (8 for parents; 6 for siblings).

    2. Participation in this study will take a total of 1-2 hours for your child, and 90 minutes for parents/caregivers.

    3. Upon completion of the study, your family will have the opportunity to participate in a raffle to win one $50 Visa giftcard. Also, for each study participant, $1 will be donated to the International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (www.ispad.org).
