Educational Support

Attending school is part of a child’s normal, daily routine. As a result, the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta supports the in-house school program with dedicated, certified teachers so children can keep up with their studies while recovering.

Members of the Aflac Cancer Center child life team are available to visit the student’s school to give an overview of the diagnosis and treatment. The program also allows for age-appropriate discussions about the emotional aspects of the student’s illness and how teachers and classmates can help.
