The Tiny Docs team has a simple mission - to inspire a healthier, happier planet. The medical world can be intimidating, especially for children, so we’re creating a world full of imagination and wonder, where kids and families can smile, laugh, interact, and most importantly, learn. Tiny Docs provides resources to educate kids and families about health issues in simple, easy to understand language. Our library of cartoons inspire while they educate, replacing fear with knowledge and anxiety with confidence.
In addition to helping kids and families understand health issues, we are inspiring kids to be whatever they want to be in life. Our lead character is Dr. Patches, a 10-year-old young lady. Her sidekick, Nurse Scrubs, is a 9-year-old boy wonder. We want little boys and girls to do and be whatever they want regardless of gender norms.
Our video content is created with the help of child life specialists, physicians, pediatric nurses, kids and talented creatives. The panel of healthcare professionals ensure that all our content is medically sound. The kids ensure that the content is relatable and accessible. And the talented creatives ensure that the content is delivered in a fun, creative and entertaining way.
Our aim is to make a billion people smile in 100 languages. In order to do that we are creating a library that will address a host of health issues. Our animated library will address both surgical procedures and chronic health issues. We'll tackle a multitude of health topics. It's important to us kids and families have access to health information that educates, engages and empowers.
We distribute Tiny Docs video content on our website and through hospital networks. Imagine a child recently learns that he or she needs to undergo a tonsillectomy. That child can then watch our animated adventure, "Shiver Me Tonsils," while at the healthcare clinic or at home. At home, a child and parent can log onto our site, watch and learn together. Currently, we're working on expanding the number of hospitals that distributes Tiny Docs.
Armed with education and an understanding of what is going to happen, kids and families can face health challenges with a little more confidence, a little less fear and a feeling of empowerment.
In closing, I cannot underscore enough that we are not a proxy for the doctor. Instead, we are a resource to help deliver better, quality healthcare services to kids and families. Knowing the kind of information that the child and parents are receiving, the doctor can spend more time addressing pertinent questions and concerns.
