Improving the Pediatric Education and Creative Arts Programs
The Children's Cancer Hospital is evaluating its pediatric education and creative arts programs and wants to hear from parents and patients who have utilized the programs while at M. D. Anderson.
The two programs focus on helping patients get through their cancer without losing focus on their education, and they allow patients to express what they are feeling through various artistic outlets. It's the Children's Cancer Hospital's desire to continue to assess and evolve its programs to make sure they best meet the needs of patients and families at the hospital.
We would love to hear from you. Please consider taking this short survey to help us make every child's experience better at the Children's Cancer Hospital.
