Visit to the Fonlladosa Schools of Malgrat de Mar
Today we went to Fonlladosa Schools in Malgrat de Mar to give a talk about PID. Martina, a student of 1st ESO of this school, is treated at the UPIIP of Vall d'Hebron Barcelona Hospital Campus, both she and her family are collaborators of the Barcelona PiD Foundation. Andrea Martín, Martina's doctor, and Laura López, her psychologist at the unit, participated.
On a medical level, we explained what PIDs are and on a psychological level, how we recommend that colleagues treat another person who suffers from PID, taking into account its implications. We have given advice on an emotional level about resources we can use and we have talked in discussion about tolerance of differences.
We thank Fonlladosa Schools for the opportunity, and Martina and her family for the initiative!
