ICAN International Childrens Advisory Network Launch

ScotCRN YPG were invited to attend the launch of the ICAN International Children’s Advisory Network in Washington DC which took place between 22-26 June 2015. The visit was funded by ICAN, via the American Academy of Paediatrics and generously by ARCHIE.

The purpose of ICAN is to bring together all the Young Person’s Advisory Groups to support each other in their development and to establish a virtual network that Pharma and investigators can contact to get expert opinions from young people.
