Children's Hospital Health Care Professionals

Children’s Hospital is conducting extensive research on rare diseases to improve diagnosis, treatment, and ultimately, patient outcomes. Rare diseases are conditions that affect a small number of people, often with limited treatment options. Research in this field is critical to advancing our understanding of these diseases and developing new therapies.

Legacy donors of Children’s Health Foundation play an essential role in this research by providing funding and resources that enable researchers to conduct studies, develop new treatments, and improve patient care. Your contributions make it possible to continue important work that can help improve the lives of children and families affected by rare diseases.
Come with your comments, questions, and personal experiences.

Enjoy informative presentations by Children’s Hospital’s esteemed healthcare professionals, along with Children’s Hero Ambassador, Cole Heesels. Cole will share how your generosity has had an incredible impact on transforming children’s health care for kids like him.
