Former preemies celebrate Halloween at UI Health

WHAT:

“Halloween Happiness,” the 2014 reunion of neonatal intensive care graduates, will offer games and entertainment, pumpkin decorating and face painting to entertain children previously cared for at the Children’s Hospital University of Illinois.

WHO:

More than 200 people — including 50 graduates of the NICU and their families, nurses, physicians and hospital staff — will attend the celebration. The event is made possible by generous donations from Discovery Labs, Friends of Pediatrics and hospital staff.
