Dr. Katie Eastman

Dr. Katie Eastman has held a series of mental health-related positions working with children and families, culminating in work with seriously ill and dying children and most recently adults with Cancer. She attended Boston University School of Theology and The University of Houston School of Social Work and acquired a Doctorate in Child Psychology. Katie founded the non-profit organization, The Jason Program, to honor a courageous young man who left this earth by far too early.

The organization, now called Children’s Palliative Care Community, continues to support seriously ill children and their families through one of life’s most difficult circumstances by engaging community members with families in need. Dr. Katie has just contributed to a book, ‘Percolate’ by Elizabeth Hamilton-Guarino that will be published in August by Hay House Publishers
