Congratulations, Quinn! You make your Bulldog family proud!

Quinn was once described as "the sickest patient at Egleston.” In 2008, acute myocarditis had the pre-teen in the fight of her life. By middle school graduation, Quinn had two goals: attend the University of Georgia and get a job at Children’s. This morning, as we kicked off National Hospital Week, Quinn reported for her first day of work as a behavior data analyst.
