Coronavirus Update:What patients and families need to know
Community Outreach Programs
Advocacy efforts aren’t confined to our Child Health Advocacy Institute. Concern for community health is a core value shared across our entire hospital.
Children’s National Hospital physicians, nurses, researchers and staff often spearhead and lead new outreach efforts. Here are just a few examples of other community programs our organization has developed.
Program: IMPACT DC
Asthma awareness and education through D.C. schools, healthcare providers and community events.
Program: Being Me Health Curriculum
Being Me is a science-based health curriculum developed by a collaboration of scientists and educators for kids in grades 3-5.
Program: Teen Programs
Children's National physicians and staff know that it's tough to be a teen. That's why we offer many programs for developing teens at the Children's Adolescent Health Center.
Program: Safe Kids DC
Educational programs and outreach activities, such as car-seat checkups, safety workshops and sports clinics aimed at keeping kids safe.
Program: Healthy Generations
Primary care, case management support, health education and wellness for adolescent parents and their children.
Program: Team Kid POWER (KiPOW!)
Medical students mentor and educate D.C. public school students on nutrition, exercise and health.
Program: Parish Nursing
