Support Groups

During difficult times, you or your child may find it helpful to talk with others who are facing similar challenges. Because our commitment to providing patient- and family-centered care extends beyond medical treatment, St. Christopher's Hospital for Children facilitates a variety of parent and pediatric support groups, including:

  • Diabetic Support Group — this group, for children ages 14 and older, meets Mondays, 4:15 p.m.–5:15 p.m. in the Endocrinology Office. For more information, call (215) 427-8108
  • Sickle Cell Parent Support Group — this group is held the third Saturday of the month, 1–3 p.m. in the Education Conference Room. For more information, call (215) 427-4442
  • Oncology Parent Support Group — this group is held the first Wednesday of each month, 1:30 p.m.–2:30 p.m. in the Oncology Conference Room. For more information, please call (215) 427-5571
