The feeling is mutual: John Wagner & Megan Voss

As an integrative therapies program manager, Megan Voss, DNP, RN, works closely with physicians in the Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplantation Unit at Masonic Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Young patients and their families come from around world for experimental treatments that offer hope and also bring potentially catastrophic risks. With a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree in integrative health and healing, Voss is able to support sick children in partnership with the full care team.

“While I design trials and implement complex treatment plans, Megan brings comfort through healing touch, acupressure and other approaches. She is focused on the whole patient. Together, we find ways to heal the sick child. While I focus on finding a curative intervention for the disease, Megan teaches them how to heal from within. Our kids and their families need both; not one more than the other.”
