Eight children, including 7-year-old Zevaeh Daugherty, above, participated in Sibling Day at the NIH Clinical Center and The Children's Inn at NIH July 19. The event focused on the brothers and sisters of pediatric patients and the important role they play as a part of the medical care team. Dr. Muhammad Yousef, with the Department of Perioperative Medicine, demonstrates a video-assisted intubation of a practice mannequin during a hands-on session in the operating room. The children also visited the Department of Laboratory Medicine and participated in other therapeutic music and art activities.
