#CHANGEMAKERS speaking up, because kids can’t wait

Children’s Miracle Network has recognized #CHANGEMAKERS during Children’s Hospital Week. #CHANGEMAKERS are celebrities, influencers, corporate leaders and fundraisers who have used their voice to impact the future of kids’ health across North America. Together we can change kid’s health. Together we can change the future.

Dr. Lynn D’Andrea is our Children’s Wisconsin #CHANGEMAKER! This past year, she brought public attention to the vaping-related health concerns that are impacting kids. We are grateful for the impact Dr. D’Andrea and other Children’s employees have had on this national health concern not only within our hospital and clinic walls, but beyond.

Another stellar example of #CHANGEMAKERS are our partners at Speedway! They donated 7,000 N95 and 3,000 surgical masks to 11 hospitals including Children’s Wisconsin to help protect our care providers from COVID-19. Generous support from our community and partners are what help kids like Children’s Wisconsin Champion, Libbie. She recently stopped by Speedway to thank them for their great work and donation!

“Speedway’s commitment to the well-being of local medical professionals has never been more needed or more appreciated. It’s comforting to know that these doctors and nurses have the needed resources necessary to care for those who depend on children’s hospitals now and into the future,” said Teri Nestel, interim president and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

During these unprecedented times, #CHANGEMAKERS like Dr. D’ Andrea, Speedway and you come together to help and ensure a better future for kids. With your support and courage we will get through the impacts of COVID-19 together!
