Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford
We are now working to support the newly established music therapy program at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital! We have provided the seed money to create this program and our team is helping to replicate our successful model from UCSF Benioff and UCLA Mattel. We provide mentorship and support to Cassi Crouse our music therapist, along with a network of peer support from our other program sites.
