Jennifer’s guest include Dr. Scott Kozin from Shriners Hospital for Children - Philadelphia where he is Chief of Staff. Dr. Kozin shared the latest in technology for prosthetics. He is also a team leader for the Touching Hands Project. Emmy Hoffman who was born with a congenital condition is also joined by her mother, Jocelyn Hoffman on In Focus. Mrs. Hoffman wrote a book titled, “Emmy’s Amazing Hand” – and shared their experiences in raising awareness about limb differences and its use as a resource for parents, friends and siblings. And, lastly an inspiring and informative teenager – Rachel Gould, from Springfield Township, Delaware County shows us that there isn’t anything she can’t do that she sets her mind to from playing multiple sports, to skiing to participating in marching band. “In Focus” is broadcast Saturdays from 6:30 a.m. to 7 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. to Noon on PHL17.
