Kicks for Kids: The Associate Board’s Annual Kickball Tournament

The Associate Board met on July 11 at Waveland Fields in Chicago for an afternoon of kickball. All proceeds supported the Infant Special Care Unit and Department of Pediatrics at NorthShore Evanston Hospital. 

Infant Special Care Unit (ISCU) Reunion Picnic 

The Associate Board was proud to sponsor the 43rd annual Infant Special Care Unit (ISCU) Reunion Picnic, which was held on June 28 and welcomed families with "graduates" from the ISCU to participate in this celebratory day. Children enjoyed a fun day of activities and entertainment while getting to reconnect with their nurses and clinical care partners. Associate Board members volunteered their time to help with face painting, refreshment stations and more to bring the day together for these families.
