Transition Success Story: Liza Patchel

August 2, 2013
A lifetime of care at Kennedy Krieger, along with her mother’s no-pity approach to parenting, helped Liza on her path to earning a master’s degree and living independently.

Liza PatchelWhen Liza Patchel was diagnosed with cerebral palsy as an infant, doctors said she would never speak or walk. When she enrolled in public school, administrators said she would never play for their sports teams. Other “experts” told her she would never go to college. Now 31, Liza has spent most of her life proving them wrong.

The Cooling Cure

by Kristina
Rolfes
August 2, 2013
A collaboration between doctors and engineers leads to an innovative, low-cost medical device that may help prevent cerebral palsy in developing countries.

As far back as 1000 BC, ancient civilizations used a primitive, but ingenious, cooling system using nothing more than clay pots, water, and the natural cooling power of evaporation to keep food cool. Could this same low-tech cooling system be used to prevent brain damage and cerebral palsy in developing countries? A team from Kennedy Krieger and Johns Hopkins recently developed an inexpensive medical device meant to do exactly that.
