Elizabeth Sheeren, KIDS Michigan

As someone whose life is directly impacted by research, I have a great appreciation for the work iCAN accomplishes. It can be difficult for researchers and medical professionals to hear the utterly important voices of the youth, and iCAN helps those voices to not only be heard, but to make an impact on pediatric research. It is incredible that an organization like iCAN can make such a difference across the world, and the fact that so much of its work is executed by youth is astounding. I am so honored to be a part of this extraordinary organization, and to be able to advocate and fight for kids and teens like me.
