While not known by everyone, child life specialists are considered by some to be vital to the health care process. Existing since the 1920s, the profession aims to improve health care experiences for children while they are in the hospital. What also isn’t known by many is that March is Child Life Month, which is meant to honor the child life specialist profession.
