MINEOLA KIWANIS CLUB RAISES $2,500 FOR WINTHROP-UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL’S CHILD LIFE PROGRAM



In an outstanding demonstration of their continued support to pediatric patients at Winthrop-University Hospital, The Kiwanis Club of County Seat Mineola recently donated $2,500 to Winthrop’s Child Life Program. The group raised this money during various fundraising events throughout the year, including its annual golf outing.

Winthrop’s Child Life Program is dedicated to helping children understand and cope with the hospital experience. Certified Child Life Specialists utilize therapeutic play, arts and crafts, entertainment and playful education to ensure that the hospital experience is as stress-free as possible for children and their families. Child Life Specialists are available in the Hospital’s Pediatric Emergency Unit, the Cancer Center for Kids Outpatient Center, the Pediatric Specialty Center and the Hagedorn Pediatric Inpatient Center.

Pictured at the check presentation were (l.-r.) John P. Broder, Vice President of External Affairs and Development at Winthrop; Stephan Parmett of the Kiwanis Club of County Seat Mineola; Nicole Almeida, MS, CCLS, Director of the Child Life Program at Winthrop; and Warren Rosenfeld, MD, Chairman of the Department of Pediatrics at Winthrop.
