Faces of Loyola: Megan Gertz, Child Life Specialist

Through art projects, video games, parties and special guests, child life specialist Megan Gertz makes it her mission to brighten the days of Loyola Medicine’s youngest patients. “I love seeing the smiles on the kids’ faces when they walk into the playroom,” she said. Megan organizes programs and stocks the playroom, thanks to generous donations, including proceeds from the Loyola Medicine 5K Supporting Pediatric Care and Research.
