Doug & Kelly had the opportunity to talk to a Capital Region name that may sound familiar to you - Kristi Gustafson Barlette from the Times Union. Like so many others in the Capital Region, Kristi too has a personal experience with The Bernard & Millie Duker Children's Hospital at Albany Med & shared her story during the Cares for Kids Radiothon.
Fourth of July weekend last year, her then 3 year old daughter cut her foot badly on a floor heating register & was rushed to The Massry Family Chidlren's Emergency Center at Albany Med for treatment. Listen to the interview to find out why Kristi found the ER to be a relaxing & comforting place, and just how important the Child Life Specialists can be in comforting children in ways parents cannot.
