Share Your Story
Sharing your family’s healthcare experiences helps other families to cope with their child’s diagnosis and treatment. The knowledge of a family who successfully managed their child’s medical care is of the most reassuring and empowering information another family can receive. If you would like to share the story of your child’s medical journey, please contact the Weill Cornell Medicine Communication Team: (646) 962-9564 // firstname.lastname@example.org, or fill out the Office of External Affairs Contact Request Form.
Participate in the Family Advisory Council (FAC)
The Department of Pediatrics works closely with the Komansky Children’s Hospital Family Advisory Council (FAC), a group of dedicated parents and family members of pediatric patients who are committed to working with hospital staff and administration to provide family-centered care for all pediatric patients.
Formed as part of our family-centered care mission, the FAC seeks to promote communication between families and staff to improve the delivery of care in the hospital. The council works to ensure that each child’s stay is as comfortable as possible, improving patient services and providing families with the information and guidance they need to care for their children with confidence. All parental members of the FAC are official hospital volunteers, serving patients and their families when on-site.

Volunteer at Komansky Children’s Hospital
Volunteers contribute to the Department of Pediatrics through our affiliation with the NewYork-Presbyterian Phyllis and David Komansky Children’s Hospital at Weill Cornell Medical Center. They provide vital assistance for our patients, families and healthcare professionals. We welcome warm and caring individuals who would like to volunteer their time to provide toys and games, assist with arts and crafts activities, serve as companions when necessary and ease stress during hospital stays. Our volunteers make a special difference in the lives of our young patients and their families.
All volunteers must be at least 18 years old and apply through the NewYork-Presbyterian Volunteer Office. When applying, let Volunteer Office staff know you are interested in a position in the Department of Pediatrics.
