Episode Description

In this week’s episode, I am thrilled to welcome the lovely Dr. Jennifer Pratt, a Pediatric Physician from her home in Minnesota. Dr. Jen Pratt is a pediatric physician caring for children in the same hospital where she was treated. Her story has come full circle, back to where her life was transformed. Dr. Pratt can now help improve the lives of other children battling critical illnesses with the gift of a wish referral and personally share in the transformation that comes with her patients’ wish experiences.


She attended medical school at Midwestern University in Chicago, IL, and completed her pediatric residency training at the University of Minnesota. Her areas of interest include teaching medical students and residents, quality improvement work, and caring for medically complex children. Outside of the hospital, Jen enjoys golfing and exploring the outdoors with her family.


Make-A-Wish creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, Make-A-Wish is the world’s leading children’s wish-granting organization, operating in every community in the United States and nearly 50 countries worldwide. Together with generous donors, supporters, staff, and more than 24,000 volunteers across the U.S., Make-A-Wish delivers hope and joy tochildren and their families when they need it most. Make-A-Wish aims to bring the power of wishing to every child with a critical illness because wish experiences can help improve emotional and physical health.
