Letter From our President — Winter 2015

December 08, 2015
Gary W. Goldstein, MD

Every day I am impressed by the tenacity of our patients, their families, and the professionals at Kennedy Krieger who are devoted to finding the keys to unlock their potential. The stories featured in this issue of Potential exemplify that tenacity.

We are honored to play a part in improving these lives and humbled by the trust families place in us. However, there are many more children and families who are in need of our services. The demand for our specialized, comprehensive care is growing—in the last decade, the number of individuals we serve each year has doubled.

To meet this need, the Institute has embarked on an ambitious $60 million capital campaign that will allow us to bring more resources and services to children and families—like Christian, Anthony, and Kylie featured in this issue of Potential. You’ll hear more in the coming months about this exciting campaign that will allow us to build room to grow our transformative services and programs. We welcome your support of this exciting next chapter.

2016 holds tremendous promise for Kennedy Krieger and those we serve. We’re committed to bringing you more inspiring stories of hope and progress.

Warmest holiday wishes to you and yours,

Gary W. Goldstein, MD
President & CEO
