Patients need doctors to coordinate their care, but without a supporting team of allied health professionals to help, the truth is that doctors would never be able to accomplish a fraction of what gets done today. So the question is, who makes up the broad team of allied health professionals? The answer to that question took me down an interesting path of discovery, and is the topic of our new "Dynamo Discussions" video series. Today we are interviewing Child Life intern Kathleen Boone, to learn just who child life professionals are and what they do to help improve the lives of patients.

Kathleen Boone holds a Bachelors degree from Moody Bible Institute in Washington State, where she focused on Intercultural Studies. She went on to pursue graduate studies at Azusa Pacific University in Southern California, where she is currently completing a child life internship. Kathleen describes herself as "Justice oriented" and her passion for helping others shows through both in her words about the field of Child Life, and in her inspiring personal journey.
