Everybody loves a story

Nov 20, 2013: TREKK Co-directors, Drs Harling and Scott, spoke with CTV news Edmonton about how they are using stories as powerful tools to relay information on croup to parents. Over 400 parents took part in their storytelling research. One finding showed that the children whose parents who received a book recovered from their croup symptoms more quickly that the families that didn't.

A TREKK team wants to expand these croup storybooks into e-books and an interactive online croup resource for more parents to use.  Stay tuned for more infomation on this exciting project!
