The Teen Council, made up of current or former hospital children and/or siblings, is a channel for patients at Nicklaus Children's Hospital to voice their opinions and create an awareness of the importance of making the hospital experience more family-centered.
Members are nominated by Nicklaus Children's Child Life Specialists, social workers, and nurses on a yearly basis. Nominees exhibit leadership skills, a strong desire to enhance Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, and a commitment to being involved by attending meetings, events and participating in all projects.
