MARCH IS CHILD LIFE MONTH


Child Life Month -- During Child Life Month, child life programs around the world will join the Child Life Council in educating healthcare colleagues and the public about the psychosocial needs of children in pediatric settings. Research has demonstrated that child life interventions reduce the anxiety that children and families experience in a medical setting. Child Life Month is designed to honor child life specialists as they work to ensure quality family-centered and developmentally appropriate care for children. For more information, contact: Genevieve Finn | Child Life Council | 301.881.7090, ext. 16 -- healtheo360 is proud to sponsor Child Life Month.

Even though Child LIfe month is over, I would like to recognize the great work of Child Life Specialist and the work that they do in helping children and their parents cope with challenging situations and chronic illness.
