The PLAYERS Center concentrates on four primary areas: prevention, health and wellness, access, and community education.
Many Nassau County residents are familiar with Wolfson Children’s Hospital, but most probably do not realize all the services and outreach programs this non-profit offers to promote health and well being for our children.
Megan Denk, Director of The PLAYERS Center for Child Health at Wolfson Children’s Hospital updated the Rotary Club of Amelia Island Sunrise on the purpose and functions of the center, which was established through a $1 million gift from the PLAYERS Championship to help Wolfson extend its reach as a major child advocate and to help prevent unnecessary hospitalizations.
The Rotary Club is an active supporter of Wolfson Children’s Hospital, and recently was recognized on Wolfson’s Donor Wall, which showcases individuals and organizations that have donated $50,000 or more to the hospital.
The PLAYERS Center concentrates on four primary areas: prevention, health and wellness, access, and community education. Megan shared with the group that asthma is the #1 reason why children miss school, so The PLAYERS programs work with patients to help them find primary care providers and health coverage and to provide educational programs for parents, faculty, and children to treat asthma as early as possible.
