Parents Empowering Parents (PEP)   

Manitoba families have had the opportunity to participate it the original PEP program over the past decade. MIlena Pirnat and Christine Keilback will be attending a PEP training seminar in Saskatoon this Friday the 24th through the weekend. Nurses, physiotherapists, social workers and parents from across Canada will be training on the original PEP program revision and get our first training on the new PEP2! 

PEP2 is a unique program that provides valuable conversations, exercises and tools for parents of teens (12 years old and older) with bleeding disorders
The program teaches participants how to be ”the parent” and empower their teens to become independent, capable, and productive adults while living with their bleeding disorder.
We are looking forward to sharing the PEP2 with Manitoba families. If you are interetsed, please tell MBDP Social Worker, Patty Phrakonkham-Ali or contact the office at 204.775.8625.
