About Us

Our Mission is Two-fold:

1. To brighten the hospital experience for children and their families by matching pediatric patients with college student volunteers who provide fun, friendship, and support throughout hospital stays.

2. To promote compassionate care in medicine and improve bedside manner, by fostering meaningful relationships between undergraduate healthcare students and hospitalized children.

Our History

Started by college student Erica Sokol, in 2010, years later StudentsCare continues to involve college students in impacting the lives of hospitalized children and families.
