In this episode of The Dragonfly Effect Podcast, board member Dr. Jennifer Chung discusses why she became involved with The Dragonfly Foundation. Dr. Chung was drawn to Dragonfly because of its mission to provide holistic support to pediatric cancer patients and their families.
While Dr. Chung appreciates how advances in research can save lives, she also recognizes the importance of emotional, relational and practical support. As one of the Cincinnati, Ohio's top physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians, she has focused her career on helping people with physical impairments, disabilities and pain issues. Her mission is to provide the most thorough and optimal care to improve the quality life of her patients, taking into consideration the entire patient as a whole rather than the diagnosis alone.
Dr. Chung earned her medical degree from Drexel University College of Medicine and completed residency training at New York University Langone Medical Center, where she served as chief resident. She is a member of the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Currently, she is working at The Christ Hospital, which has been recognized as "The Most Preferred Hospital in the Region" for 21 consecutive years.
Dr. Chung hopes to help grow The Dragonfly Foundation, locally and nationally, to help more families affected by pediatric cancer.
Listen to Dr. Jennifer Chung tell her personal story and share her understanding of the Dragonfly effect.
