San Francisco Chronicle

Last week, the Hyundai Motor Company presented Children’s Hospital & Research Center Oakland with a $100,000 grant to support the Children’s Oncology School Reintegration Program, which helps pediatric cancer survivors return to school following treatment. A multi-disciplinary team including psychologists Dr. Dina Hankin and Dr. Pamela Orren, as well as neuropsychologist Dr. Seth Ubogy and several social workers, helps patients achieve academic success in spite of missed classroom time or decreased cognitive abilities resulting from cancer treatments.
