Our Diversionary Play program provides inviting activities in the waiting areas of the clinics. When patients are greeted with an entertaining environment filled with interactive arts and crafts, they are allowed to just be kids! Research shows that there are better health outcomes when patients engage in activities that make them happy. Additionally, the program will keep the patients’ siblings entertained, permitting the parents to focus their energy on the betterment of their ill child. These activities provide a more relaxed and welcoming atmosphere throughout the entire clinic, allowing medical personnel to provide the best quality of care.
* Volunteers must be 16 years of age or older. Diversionary Play volunteers, please specify the days you are available to help - Monday-Friday.
