H1N1 Not an Issue in Lion's Dens
Santa Claus to visit Lion’s Dens across North America on Dec. 16
HUNTINGTON, NY - November 2010 – Due to infectious diseases such as last year's swine flu scare, hospitals across North America have become even lonelier places, putting a greater premium on the services delivered by Lion’s Den Rooms and the XBox 360 mobile kiosks provided by the Companions in Courage Foundation.
Introducing technology to the healing process means connecting to the outside world via the Internet, video conferencing and XBox Live communities.
On Thursday, December 16th, one of the most enjoyable days of the year will hit Lion’s Dens from Florida to Montreal when Santa Claus visits patients via Cisco’s WebEx technology. Patients in each hospital will video conference with Santa and his elves at the North Pole and share their hopes and dreams for the Christmas season. This is a healthy and germ-free way for patients in hospitals to share the traditional experience enjoyed by their friends and family members who line shopping malls waiting for the chance to visit with Santa.
As a bonus, “elves” from Cisco Systems will provide each patient with a gift at each hospital. To learn more about how you may contribute, please visit:
