Celebrating Our Child Life Specialists

March is Child Life Month, and we’d be remiss if we didn’t give a special shout out to our Child Life team.

Amy, Betsy, and Dale are all in, all the time, for our young patients and their families.

What is a child life specialist? Great question! A child life specialist is specially trained to help kids and their families cope with the stress of an acute or chronic medical condition, including loss and bereavement.

Much of their time is focused around therapeutic play and education to reduce fear, anxiety, and pain.

We’re so grateful to have Amy, Betsy, and Dale on our Pediatrics team!
