Jacksonville, Florida (PRWEB) February 03, 2017
Two photographs taken at Wolfson Children’s Hospital – one by local photographer Ingrid Damiani and another taken by Bob Self with the Florida Times-Union – were selected for inclusion in the 2017 Children’s Hospitals Photo Exhibit, a national competition presented by HUGGIES ® and administered by the Children’s Hospital Association (CHA).

From healthy kids to children with rare and complex medical conditions, the exhibit celebrates children’s hospitals’ commitment to the health of all children.
Damiani’s photo of a pediatric nurse at Wolfson Children’s holding a baby with congenital heart disease, and Self’s photo of a young boy with a brain disorder and his neuroimaging tests, were chosen from more than 180 photographs submitted by 40 children’s hospitals across the country. The distinguished panel of judges representing Parents magazine, The Exposure Group, National Geographic Kids, Positive Exposure, and the Children’s Hospitals Today editorial advisory group.
The judges selected the photographs for their excellent composition and ability to depict what really makes children’s hospitals unique.
“We are grateful to the talented photographers who captured life at Wolfson Children’s Hospital so beautifully,” said Michael D. Aubin, president of Wolfson Children’s. “Our caregivers are amazing and it is an honor for our hospital to be represented in the national Children’s Hospitals photo exhibit.”
The Children’s Hospitals Photo Exhibit will be on display to the general public the week of July 10, 2017, in the rotunda of the Russell Senate Building and in the foyer of the Rayburn House Building in Washington, D.C. July 17 and 18, 2017.
