"Just wanted to share that the older girl you worked with yesterday was out at the nurses station showing off the bag trick she learned yesterday. She is a natural."
Lisa Wallace-Spech (UNMC Child Life Specialist)
Here's a short video to give you a sampling from our Magic In The Hospitals™ video magic show performances.
Our Teach-A-Trick videos help the child learn a magic trick with a piece of medical equipment they might encounter during their stay in the hospital (i.e. an emesis bag, a tourniquet, a latex glove, a cotton swab, etc.) - seeking to lower their anxieties surrounding those items.
Retired after thirty-four years as an Omaha family physician, Steve Osborn now finds time to pursue his life long interest in magic.
Given his background it makes sense that he now blends his passions of magic and medicine to lead the club’s Magic In The Hospitals team.
