Engage, Learn, Enjoy

Children’s Health Council members enjoy exciting opportunities to engage directly with Weill Cornell Medicine experts and to connect with like-minded parents, grandparents and other individuals.

  • Discovery Panels bring leading physicians together for interdisciplinary discussion around today’s most pressing children’s health issues.
  • Family Science Day gets the whole family involved in science education. Weill Cornell graduate students lead hands-on science activities for Council members and their children.
  • Intimate members-only cocktail receptions and luncheons give Council members the chance to get to know one another and the scientists they support.
  • Faculty-led laboratory tours give Council members an inside look at where, when and how scientific discoveries happen.
