Family Support: NEOMED Buddy Program

A program matching first-year medical students from Northeast Ohio Medical University with a child coping with cancer or a blood disorder. The students offer friendship and support to the children as they gain insight into how a life-threatening illness impacts patients and their families. Matches are made in September and continue through June. Social worker meets with both parties throughout the program.
