Calendar Kids
2012 marks 10 years in the “new” children’s hospital and the 60th anniversary of the UNC Department of Pediatrics, a fact that makes the theme of this year’s pediatric calendar so poignant—"Celebrating a Decade of Difference." The calendar features 17 children and young adults who were patients at UNC before there was a North Carolina Children’s Hospital. They and their families have witnessed an entire evolution in care and can testify to the tremendous impact the “new” N.C. Children’s Hospital has had in the lives of hundreds of thousands of children since its doors first opened 10 years ago. Join us here online each month to learn more about our featured patient and clinical programs.
