Nurse Practitioner and Clinical Care Coordinator
PANDA Palliative Care Team
Children’s National Health System
Deborah is part of the PANDA Palliative Care team at Children’s National: a nurse-led program which seeks to help relieve the various emotional and practical burdens that families often face when their children are diagnosed with a life limiting illness. As a parent herself, she understands that it’s extremely difficult to make treatment decisions with a very sick child, and she and her team try to shoulder as much of that burden as they can.
