For the past few months I’ve been hard at work editing the Fall issue of  Speaking of Children.

This was my first time editing the magazine and I knew I had some big shoes to fill. Rigorous training was in order so I popped my copy of Spiderman in the DVD player, feeling certain that  J. Jonah Jameson, editor of the Daily Bugle, would serve as a perfect example of editorial expertise.  One flat top and many cigars later and I was on my way.

Ok, I’m kidding – there was no cigar. I work at a children’s hospital! And maybe the flat top didn’t help as much as I thought it would.

The truth is that the magazine relies on the dedicated input, direction, and ideas of a fabulous group of writers, photographers, and designers, who all work together to bring the most up-to-date information about the goings-on at the Hospital to yJjonahjamesonou, our readers.

In the Fall issue we spoke with Dr. David Scheifele, the Director of the Vaccine Evaluation Center, who explained the role that vaccines play in the school years. We heard from the nurses in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), where Frankie Rubino, age one, has spent the last six months of his young life being treated for an infection that attacked his tiny lungs. And we wrote about the hardest topic of all – losing a child. We examined what role the hospital plays and what it does to ease that tremendously difficult experience.

I am proud to be part of the magazine and encourage you to check it out!
