Young Alliance is a growing community of physician spouses with young families. With that comes challenges and sacrifices that are unique to medicine. We are here to create a supportive network to ease those challenges and provide a way to make connections with those in a similar stage in life with hectic physician schedules. The Young Alliance provides this through social events and gatherings. Once or twice a month our members meet up for playdates around the area. It gives our children the chance to get moving and provides an opportunity to cultivate and develop relationships with each other and support each other on this journey.
This year, we enjoyed playing at various parks around Grand Rapids, celebrated the Fourth of July with Red, White and Blue snacks and crafts, gathered families together for a summer picnic, and were so fortunate to get a tour of both a fire station and airplane hanger!
