Beverly Coleman, pediatric nurse practitioner

"It is great to be associated with a children's hospital like CHKD that provides access to numerous specialists and quality inpatient care. After living and working in places lacking easy access to quality pediatric care, I am appreciative of what CHKD offers our patients."
