S.M.I.L.E. (Students Making It a Little Easier)

SMILE is a VCU School of Medicine program designed to pair medical students (big buddies) with pediatric patients (little buddies) being treated at VCU Healthsystem. The big buddy serves as friend and mentor to their little buddy, providing a welcome distraction during long days of doctors appointments or hospital stays. Better2gether RVA is excited to assist in extending this program to children with medically complex illnesses treated at the Children’s Pavilion at VCU.
