Interlace Health President Takes a Seat in the Spotlight on Kids Rock Cancer’s “Couch Session” – Discusses Change & Leading through the Pandemic
Interlace Health President and Kids Rock Cancer Council Member, Randy Campbell, Featured on Music Therapist Program’s Virtual Program
Kids Rock Cancer (KRC), an innovative music therapy program created and overseen by Maryville University of St. Louis, uses the proven healing power of music therapy to help children give voice to their feelings. Since its inception in 2009, Kids Rock Cancer has worked with over 1,000 participants in St. Louis area pediatric cancer centers and other cancer-related resource organizations.
Since KRC can’t be in the healthcare setting due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they have figured out new ways to remain in consistent contact with patients, families, hospitals, community partners, and even some new followers. Reaching people outside of their hospital time is always something they have wanted to do and this “new normal” has pushed the organization to get creative. One way they have remained connected with their community is through weekly Couch Sessions – conversations held via a video format featuring exciting topics, amazing guest callers, and musical guests each session.
On August 6th, Interlace Health President and Kids Rock Cancer Council Member, Randy Campbell, got the opportunity to be a part of the program. He shared how Interlace Health is working with its customers to be successful during a time of uncertainty and rapid change; as well as how his role on the KRC Advisory Council has allowed him to tap into his business and healthcare technology experience to help KRC operate differently during this time – while still providing the same quality care to patients and their families.
“At Interlace Health, we’ve been preparing for 28 years to help healthcare organizations be able to deal with the unique changes and experiences we are undergoing today.” – Randy Campbell, Interlace Health President.
