There are people at Cincinnati Children’s who have jobs that many people don’t even know exist. There are others who research and/or treat conditions that most have never heard of. And there are others who are just generally amazing people who dedicate their days (and in some cases nights) to changing the outcome for kids.
This new feature is a way for us to introduce them, and their work, to the inquiring minds that read this blog.
And so, we introduce:
Three Questions with Susan Laurence
Susan is our Injury Prevention Coordinator and car seat aficionado extraordinaire.
1. What are you working on that you are most excited about right now?
I am very passionate about child passenger safety and ensuring that children travel as safely as possible in vehicles. We know that the misuse of car seats is between 80-90% and there is so much that we can do at Cincinnati Children’s and in the community to change this to ensure the safety of our children.
2. What has been your proudest moment at Cincinnati Children’s or in your professional career?
I think that I am most proud of our funding relationship with the Greater Cincinnati Automobile Dealer Association that allows us to purchase car seats for our children/families that are in financial need.
3. If you could trade specialties or job functions with anyone at Cincinnati Children’s, who (or what role) would it be and why?
Gosh, I don’t know. Maybe a Trauma Surgeon – to have the ability to help SAVE a child’s life would be awesome. But since I have this tendency to pass out when I feel others are in pain it probably would not be a good career choice.
And if there is someone in particular at Cincinnati Children’s that you would like to know more about, please comment below and let us know.
