For Pediatrician Fara Etzel, Giving is an Extension of Her Work

7/16/2013 Press Release

For pediatrician Fara Etzel, giving is an extension of her work at Childhood Health Associates of Salem. She has a special place in her heart for children in foster care, especially medically fragile or drug-affected infants, and the word is out that she welcomes them to her practice. “They kind of find me,”  she says. Beyond that welcome, Dr. Etzel set up a deferred fund at OCF that will support groups that help foster kids. “I chose Liberty House, our local child abuse assessment center, and CASA, which is a court-appointed special advocate group for children and people who help foster kids,” she says.
