Nithya Narayan Bio

Why did you join CCHMC/DDBP? Cincinnati Children’s Hospital has been a great blessing to our family, my son has had an open-heart surgery here at the hospital when he was six months old and I immediately feel in love with this magical place. I am able to help other families who have children with special health care needs in my professional role at the hospital now.

What do you like most about your job? I love helping other families of children with special health care needs, traveling to rural areas to connect families to resources and helping serve refugee families.

How has your life changed since becoming involved with CCHMC/DDBP? It has helped me to better understand what family-centered care is all about and advocate more for family engagement in all aspects of care.

What’s your greatest achievement? My Family.

What do you like to do in your spare time? I like to travel, visit India to see my kith and kin, spend time with my family, cook and EAT!
