Formula Shortage: What Parents Can Do
The infant formula shortage that is currently impacting the United States has reached an unprecedented level. It has left families wondering what they should feed their children if they cannot find their usual formula.
Every Story Matters
“Being a Hematology/Oncology nurse for 38 years doesn’t make you hardened or unemotional. I still cry with families. We can’t always control their outcome, but if I can make their time a little bit better while they are here, then I have done my job. I wouldn’t trade my job for anything.”
“In the population I see, there’s a lot of factors that go into what’s causing problems at home and/or at school. There is a lot of investigation into the developmental, psychological, environmental and relational components that need to be considered. Getting to the root of the problem is very satisfying. Every day that I come to work I feel like I am able to make a positive impact in children’s lives.”
“I think I was just born with the desire to care for people. My mom said I was always trying to “fix” everyone when they were hurt or sick so she was not shocked that I ended up in the nursing field. I love meeting and working with new people all the time. I love the ability to be creative in my role and being surrounded by a great team. Phenomenal research, care and people come from Nationwide Children’s, so I am proud to say I am part of Nationwide Children’s Hospital.”
