Contour Magazine Features CHOP Patients and Staff

Published on in CHOP News

Smiling child wearing a hat Angela Walter, a student in the Maurice H. Kornberg School of Dentistry at Temple University, attended last year's Best Friends Bash, an event that pairs patients from the Craniofacial Program at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) with dogs who have similar conditions.

She was inspired by the many CHOP team members who work hard to create a place for patients to thrive physically and emotionally. In particular, Angela spoke with Diana Sweeney, a parent liaison in the Division of Plastic Surgery, along with Maryelena Baldassare, a 10-year-old CHOP patient.

As a result, she wrote a story for Contour, the premier magazine of the American Student Dental Association (ASDA). The article focuses on the importance of providing well-rounded care when treating children with craniofacial differences.
