Kids helping kids: Introducing the Mott Kids4Kids video series

Debut video features Mott patients talking about adjusting to scars and other physical differences

One of the things I’ve learned in my time here at Mott Children’s Hospital is that sometimes kids themselves are the best teachers we have.

My colleague, Jacqueline Kaufman, PhD, and I developed the Kids4Kids video series to take advantage of the incredible expertise of the kids we work with to help other kids and families going through similar experiences.

Over the course of the next few weeks, we’ll be debuting a new Kids4Kids video for you each week.  This week’s video features kids sharing their experiences adjusting to a physical difference from their illness or treatment – things like scars, hair loss, or being in a wheelchair.

Tell us:
