Alicia Acosta is a bilingual Licensed Clinical Social Worker who graduated from SDSU in 1974. She has been working at Rady Childrens Hospital for 45 years and most of that time has been spent working in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Alicia was also honored the National Association of Social Workers Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008.
While working with NICU families during their hospitalization, Alicia identifies varying resources that will benefit the familys needs. One of the most useful and supportive resources has been the partnership with Miracle Babies. Miracle Babies provides parents with monthly gift bags, financial support, baby items and holds monthly Miracle Hour events. Miracle Hour is a time for parents to meet other parents and enjoy lunch with crafts to take their minds off the hospitalization for a short period of time.
Alicia keeps Miracle Babies busy as a champion in advocating for her NICU parents. Thank you Alicia for your long-standing support and caring for NICU families’ collective well -being!
