Clinical Advisory Council

In 2009, the KHLF established a group of prominent leaders within the profession of Child Life to bring a clinical perspective and on-the-ground expertise to the Foundation's programs. The members are all nationally and internationally renowned leaders in the child life field, are all past Directors of the (World) Child Life Council, and have extensive clinical experience and credibility amongst their peers. With Advisory Council representatives from hospitals across Canada, this group of child life specialists is an enormous resource for our work. Meet our Clinical Advisory Council:
