AACY founder and president Dr. Connie Siskowski had the pleasure to be featured on the JustStart Podcast, created by nationally recognized, Boca Raton High School English Teacher Jordan Hernandez. We are grateful to Jordan for taking the time to learn about AACY and helping us to continue to spread our message, so that the voices of our Caregiving Youth can be heard!

Dr. Siskowski was interviewed for the No Barriers of Fort Collins, CO podcast. Kicking off their newest series featuring Caregivers, No Barriers interviewed Dr. Siskowski, who speaks about the hidden, often-overlooked population of caregivers in our society: children. AACY and No Barriers are excited to grow their partnership in support of our Caregiving Youth!

In a recent podcast series, No Barriers USA explores the various roles of Caregiving. In addition to interviewing Dr. Siskowski about the role of caregiving youth, No Barriers also focused on other Caregiving roles:

Caregiving for Veterans

Caregiving for Children

Among the many resources Hope Loves Company offers is a series of podcasts, including a podcast about Life as a Caregiver, and the journey of caring for a loved one who has ALS.
