Peggy Adams is a child life specialist and program coordinator for the Family Resource Center at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. She is one of the fortunate individuals who has been with Art Pass before it was even an idea. Last summer, Malcolm sat and drew pictures with patients at the little playroom table in the hematology oncology outpatient clinic. Before you knew it, there was an exchange of pictures between patients, volunteers and siblings in the playroom.
It was a magical moment and it is the gemstone for ArtPass. It is the experience of connecting through a shared exchange that makes ArtPass stand out. It’s about kids making their mark (literally) and sharing a bit of themselves with other kids in the hospital. As a board member of ArtPass, Peggy is committed to ensuring that the art exchange programs offer patients time together and an opportunity to build a meaningful connection one picture at a time.
