A team from Akron Children’s recently presented at the 21st Communication, Medicine, and Ethics (COMET) Conference at the University of Cork, in Cork, Ireland.

Akron Children’s has one of the few hospital-based narrative medicine programs in the country and Nicole Robinson is the only full-time narrative medicine coordinator in a pediatric hospital in the United States.
