Sam's Fans partnership with Dayton Children's Hospital started by partially funding the hospital's first ever music therapist. The partnership started in 2017 and it has continued to grow since. Lindsey Steinbrunner (picture to the left) was the first music therapist funded by Sam's Fans at Dayton Children's.
In the interview below, Lindsey tells us about her background, her work at Dayton Children's, and more! From July 2017 to June 2018 she was able to provide services to 572 patients, how amazing is that!
Since 2020, Sam's Fans started funding a second therapist at Dayton Children's Hospital who works in the behavioral health unit. Ella Guillard (pictured to the left) studied music therapy at Baldwin Wallace University, right away outside of Cleveland. She engages with the kids in the hospital by offering group and individual therapy.
