“See Me for Me” Videos

On behalf of the DDBP-Family Advisory Council, we are excited to share the See Me for Me videos. These 4 videos highlight our incredible patients and families, and the amazing work of our division! These videos were a creation of last year’s DDBP-FAC subcommittee which was led by Dr. Allison Blackburn, so a BIG thank you to her and the family members!

In October, The Children’s Theater of Cincinnati hosted us to show off the video and honor the stars. It was such a great celebration! There were autograph signings, yummy food, and lots of smiles!
