ACLP received grant funding to support the sustainability of child life programs abroad through development of local internship programs. The Children's Cancer Foundation (CCF) child life program in Hong Kong was identified to participate in this grant initiative.

In August, Tammy Loy, Karen Leung, and Keynes Wong visited the U.S. to tour and study three different internship programs: Huntsville Women's and Children's Hospital in Huntsville, AL; St. Louis Children's in St. Louis, MO; and Cook Children's Health Care System in Fort Worth, TX. The CCF team will use the knowledge and resources they gained during this trip to develop the first child life internship program in Hong Kong.
