Welcome to Kennedy Krieger’s first venture into the blogosphere. Here at the Institute, the work we do is rooted in the belief that all children, regardless of a disability, should have the opportunity to reach their full potential. Our Web site and magazine are filled with stories of how our physicians, nurses, therapists, and teachers help to unlock the potential of patients and students through innovative and compassionate care, education and research. But the untold narrative is how these patients and students profoundly inspire the employees of Kennedy Krieger who feel privileged to play a small (and often a big) part of their lives. And so we introduce Inspiring Potential, a blog to share how the kids we meet here at Kennedy Krieger give meaning and inspiration to the work that we do. We look forward to your feedback and comments. Email us at InspiringPotential@kennedykrieger.org.
We welcome your comments and feedback. Please see our comments policy for more information.
