We are the Chicago Healthy Adolescents Transition Study (C.H.A.T.S.) team! Dr. Grayson Holmbeck, a clinical psychologist and professor at Loyola University Chicago, is the principal investigator of this study. For over 20 years, Dr. Holmbeck and his research team have been visiting families who have children with spina bifida, a congenital birth defect that affects neurological, urological, orthopedic, and educational functioning.
We are looking forward to attending another fun event at the ISBA Fall Family Classic and we hope to see you there! We are grateful to have ISBA support our participants and our study over the years. Any donation is greatly appreciated!
