It’s a time of transition for Cincinnati Children’s as we welcome a new board chair, Mark Jahnke, and our new chair of pediatrics and director of the Research Foundation Tina Cheng, MD, MPH. We also thank outgoing board chair Jane Portman for her service to the medical center. You can get to know each of them a little better by checking out their interviews inside.
In addition, you’ll hear from one of our patients, 26-year-old Alan Hieber, about why wearing a mask and maintaining a 6-ft. distance are so important to him and others like him. As we all experience pandemic fatigue, his story is a reminder of why we must remain vigilant.
In keeping with the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, this issue is also about gratitude. We invited you to submit your stories about what you are thankful for, and we are excited to share your responses.
Finally, in our Heritage Corner, read Elaine Billmire's story about the SAM Clinic and its innovative approach to caring for children who were sexually abused back in the 1980s.
