Summer Camp
An episode from the Good Doctors: Stories from the Heart of Health Care series

Realizing that many of her pediatric patients did not know anyone else with a cleft lip and/or cleft palate, Dr. Laura Monson, a plastic surgeon specializing in craniofacial disease at Texas Children’s Hospital, started a summer camp to build a community among her patients. This free, three-day camp serves roughly 50 children per year, helping them build interpersonal relationships and encouraging them to step outside their comfort zones through physical challenges.
