    Rosenfeld, MD, Winthrop's Chairman of Pediatrics, recently greeted Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation representatives Elaine Siver, Executive Director, and Michele Hall-Duncan, Director of Children's Services, for a tour of the Hospital's Pediatric Inpatient Center.

    Since 1997 the foundation, which works to brighten the lives of seriously ill children and their families, has donated $56,000 to fund Child Life initiatives. Projects have included furnishing the Child Life Activity Center, establishing an entertainment library in Winthrop's Cancer Center for Kids, improving the pediatric emergency room environment and providing a half dozen Fun Centers: entertainment systems consisting of a game console and video viewing equipment. Starlight Starbright's generous support of numerous projects and activities, including arts and crafts and clown visits, help make each child's visit more comforting.

    "Over the years, the group has provided our young patients with countless hours of recreational fun and therapeutic activities that help alleviate the pain and stress associated with hospitalization and illness," explained AnnMarie. For more information about the Child Life Program and the Pediatric Inpatient Center call (516) 663-2761.
