It was a promise between a mom and
son that would prove to be much harder
to keep than either could ever imagine.
In the fall of 2017, Emily Barr made a
deal with her son Maren (who goes by
Michael), that they'd graduate together
in the spring of 2021 and celebrate with
a party. In four years, Michael would earn
his high school diploma from East High
School in Denver, while she would earn
a PhD with a concentration in Caring
Science from the University of Colorado
College of Nursing. While it seemed like
a reasonable goal, life events would try to
knock them off course and make them fail.
At first, it was all going well. Emily, a
mother of five, a pediatric nurse practitioner,
midwife and an assistant professor
at CU's School of Medicine Department
of Pediatric Infectious Disease, was
managing the pediatric, adolescent and
maternal HIV research program at the
Children's Hospital Colorado. She was
also going to school and preparing to
write a dissertation. Then early last year,
a pandemic swept the globe.
Mom, Son Overcome

Health officials asked Emily and her team
if she could also run COVID-19 vaccine trials
for the National Institute of Allergy and
Infectious Diseases COVID-19 Prevention
Network. She agreed to help the cause -
even though it doubled her workload.
" I worked weekends and evenings to keep
up with my work, and my dissertation got
put to the side because there was just not
enough time to do it, " said Emily.
