In May, we revealed the new logo during the opening general session at the 2016 CLC Annual Conference. Now, we are excited to reveal our new certification logo. Over the next few months, we will continue the process of transitioning into our new professional identity. We invite members of the Child Life Council to continue to follow our progress.

CCLS Michelle Minyard-Widmann and Alisha Saavedra traveled to mainland China to help start a child life program at The Children's Hospital of Zhejiang University. As part of a team funded by the Chinese government, Minyard-Widmann and Saveedra along with their Loma Linda University child life graduate students helped the hospital open five playrooms, which are staffed by volunteers and nurses for the time being. Chinese child life students from Zhejiang University will begin studying at Loma Linda University this year. For a glimpse at their time in China, watch the video below:
