Ben.jpgBen Starr and advisor work on the development of the Fieldston Hugs Chapter. Fieldston and it’s students support the Bronx Lebanon Hospital Pediatric HIV unit; this includes siblings as well as patients suffering from acute respiratory distress. As one of the most underprivileged populations in the country, asthma reaches as many as 25% of the young population. Ben Starr spearheaded the movement to provide teddy bears to these youngsters in crisis.

Hugs Helpers continue to grow the program as new students join the effort!
