2019 Lunch and Learn features Selma Blair, Raises Funds for NICU Psychologist

In March 2019, the Ambassadors for Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital celebrated 12 years of service to Packard Children’s at their annual Lunch and Learn at Sharon Heights Country Club in Menlo Park. Guests heard from acclaimed actress, mother, and health advocate Selma Blair. She spoke with Sue McCreadie, MD, about how she coped with postpartum depression and her recent multiple sclerosis diagnosis, as well as how she balances her roles as a mother and caregiver.

This year’s Lunch and Learn benefited the Ambassadors’ 2018-2019 Fund-A-Need, supporting a dedicated clinical psychologist in our hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit and intermediate care nursery. The Fund-A-Need goal of $200,000 was met and surpassed through the generosity of Ambassadors members and their guests.

More than 220 Ambassadors work tirelessly to promote the health of children and expectant mothers in our community through philanthropy, volunteerism, and education.
