Thanks to the support of Dr. Samuel Fernández Pena at El Hospitalito, Mexico City, Psic. María Fernanda Busqueta was able to travel to the annual conference of The Child Life Council. There were over 600 attendees; representing 12 countries.

Attendees were very impressed to learn of the pioneering work being done in Mexico to benefit the hospitalized child. Specifically, the Child Life/Psychosocial Support program for children at Unidad Hospitalaria Infantil Dr. Samuel Fernández, Pena El Hospitalito.

Miss Busqueta has established herself as a respected leader in the Child Life community. During the conference this year, she coordinated a workshop and networking session focused on the global expansion of Child Life Services. Based on her participation and knowledge, colleagues from around the world contact her for advice and support.

Your wisdom and leadership is playing a critical role in shaping the future of pediatric healthcare in Mexico. It is my hope that with Miss Busqueta’s continued participation and your continued support, Unidad Hospitalaria Infantil Dr. Samuel Fernández, Pena El Hospitalito will be the undisputed leader in Latin America in Child Life service and training.
