REACH for the STARS Survivorship Program

The REACH for the STARS Survivorship Program (REACH: Research, Education, Advocacy, Continued life and Health; STARS: Survivors Tackling All Roadblocks Successfully) at Connecticut Children’s provides guidance and ongoing support to pediatric cancer survivors in an effort to help them improve and maintain a high quality and successful life. The program provides patients with comprehensive summaries of all treatments they received, individualized surveillance for late effects of treatment, access to wellness information, educational outreach events, college scholarships and additional resources on survivorship.
