IOL drive by parade04

Nathaniel Rodriguez, 11, and his mother, Ashley Rodriguez, wave and say thank you to staff at the Child and Adolescent Ambulatory Program at the Institute of Living, Hartford Hospital, during a stop with a drive-by parade outside his Hartford apartment building Friday afternoon. The staff have been providing therapy virtually for weeks due to COVID-19 and many of their patients were expressing how much they missed their in-person sessions. About ten cars full of staff and clinicians made stops across several Hartford area towns to connect and send positive messages to twenty of their patients. “It was really nice of them to stop by,” said Rodriguez.
