Area Schoolchildren Contribute Artwork to University Hospital’s New Pediatric Services Directory

Works of art by children from area schools are featured in University Hospital’s new Pediatric Services Directory. The artworks were selected by Susan Keeter, assistant director of Creative Services for University Hospital of the SUNY Health Science Center at Syracuse. A professional children’s book illustrator, Keeter was familiar with the students’ artistic abilities and recruited their help in capturing an uplifting and friendly look to the publication.

“The Directory is a wonderful resource for the Central New York medical community, and it also serves as a celebration of the very special people that we serve – children,” says Keeter.

A few of the young artists who contributed artwork to University Hospital’s Pediatric Services guide include,

  • Saleema Wright, a third grader at Dr. Weeks Elementary School, Syracuse;
  • Monique Martin, a fourth grader at Franklin Elementary School, Syracuse;
  • Jennifer Manzi, a third grader at Fayetteville Elementary School, Fayetteville;
  • Daniel Mabie, a second grader at Ed Smith Elementary School, Syracuse;
  • Morley Weston, a fourth grader at Van Buren Elementary School, Baldwinsville;
  • Iris Washington, a fourth grader at H.W. Smith Elementary School, Syracuse; and
  • Briana Barney, a third grader at Cherry Road Elementary School, Syracuse.

The Directory was a collaborative effort among the young artists, the Department of Pediatrics at University Hospital, and the Health Science Center’s Office of Marketing Communications and Public Relations. It is a comprehensive referral guide for physicians in University Hospital’s 15-county service area. It includes descriptions of the pediatric services at University Hospital and its satellite practice sites (University Health Care Center and University Health Care Manlius), as well as descriptions of community programs and agencies serving children and their families.
