My child has
Cook Children's Medical Center and our health care system as a whole proudly strive to create a family- and patient-centered care environment. To achieve that goal, there is no more reliable source than the patients and families themselves. Similar to our Family Advisory Council which is made up of parents and key caregivers of our patients, we have formed the Youth Advisory Council, which is made up of teens who are or have been patients at Cook Children's Medical Center.
Vicki Kelley, Child Life specialist and YAC-PAC facilitator, says, "I am so proud of this group because they are a motivated and insightful group of young people who really care about making Cook Children's the best it can be!"
If you know of the ideal candidate for YAC-PAC, be sure to review the nomination form for the member criteria, such as experience as a patient at the Medical Center and be a student between the ages of 12 and 17. Nominations must be sent to Julia Smeltzer and Sarah Lang at firstname.lastname@example.org. Forms can also be returned to the Child Life office on the first floor of the Medical Center.
If you have questions, or want to find out more about becoming a member of the YAC-PAC, contact Julia Smeltzer and Sarah Lang at email@example.com. This is your chance as a patient to feel empowered, step up and have your voice heard.
