Keynote Remarks

Jennifer Arnold, MD, MSc, FAAP

Dr. Arnold is a physician who is Board Certified in Neonatal Medicine and is currently the Program Director of Immersive Design Systems at Boston Children’s Hospital.

Dr. Arnold stands at 3 foot 2 and has a rare type of dwarfism. She and her husband Bill (and their children) were featured on TLC’s docu-drama, The Little Couple, which followed their personal and professional lives. The show was an invaluable way to break down barriers and educate people around the country about people with disabilities.
