MedMentor

MedMentor of Greater Cincinnati is a community-based mentoring program that connects patients ages 10-19 with mentors who provide ongoing social, emotional, and self-management support. They focus on the chronically ill patient population which includes congenital heart disease/defect patients. MedMentor collaborates locally with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and the Congenital Heart Alliance of Cincinnati to provide support to our local families. Currently, the program is in its pilot stage and is taking applications for both mentors and mentees. Visit MedMentor website to apply, or go to their Facebook page for more information.
