For National Doctors' Day, Slime-A-Doc Returns to Cook Children's

After two long, slime-free years, it’s finally time to get slimed! Cook Children’s slimed a doctor, nurse, child life specialist and a Command Center leader

Wednesday, March 30, marks National Doctors' Day. We thank all doctors around the world and the incredible physicians at Cook Children's Health Care System for their dedication and contributions.

We invite you to join us in celebrating all of our world-class doctors. From diagnosing a stomach bug to operating on a broken leg to making treatment plans, the work they do every day is making a difference in the lives of children.

Please consider making a donation to Cook Children’s in honor of your favorite doctor. There’s a place in the donation form for you to leave a note. If you choose to share your story or extend a thank you, we will make sure they get it -- because they would love to hear just what they mean to you and your family.


After a two-year hiatus, Slime-A-Doc made a comeback! The event will be hosted at 3 p.m. Wednesday at the Cook Children's Medical Center on the South Tower Lawn. 

Thank you to all of the participants and congratulations to this year's winners: 

  • Child Life: Laura Sonefeld, Sit…Stay…PLAY! coordinator 
  • Nurses and APPs: Lauren Mecke, NP, Urology 
  • COVID Command Center Leaders: Stan Davis, chief operating officer
