>>>>>BREAKING NEWS FROM LSQ!<<<<<
We all know and love Patch Adams from the movie made several years ago about his empathetic charisma. After watching it, we were inspired to seek our own justice for a patient’s humanity through becoming child life specialists. Patch’s work and message of compassion has grown immensely since the film, and he took the time to share his message with us.
LSQ’s founder Sarah Mendivel sits down with Patch to discuss his philosophies on professional boundaries, burnout prevention, his life’s work, and the importance of staying true to child life values.
“They want to have a fabulous listener, they want sweet tenderness and no sense that you are in a hurry,” says Patch. Understanding firsthand the humanity and value that a child life specialist brings into a hospital, Patch shares with LSQ an empowering theme of love and self-preservation.
As a visionary, an idealist, and a revolutionary thinker, Patch Adams and his gorgeously vivid wardrobe is single-handedly changing the way our modern day healthcare system operates.
