Meet Gannon - Learning to eat at Penn State Children's Hospital

Meet 5 year-old Gannon. For the first five years of Gannon’s life, he was unable to swallow safely, and was fed through a gastrostomy tube. Now, he begins the journey of what so many take for granted: learning how to eat. Dr. Keith Williams at the Penn State Children’s Hospital Feeding Clinic worked closely with Gannon and his mother to teach Gannon how to eat. The Feeding Clinic offers outpatient clinics and an Intensive Day Treatment Program for children from birth to age 18.
