Make DC the Capital of Caring
On December 14, we welcomed First Lady Michelle Obama, accompanied by first dogs, Bo and Sunny, to Children’s National for an annual holiday visit with our patients and families. First Lady holiday visits to Children’s National are a tradition dating back to Bess Truman. They help spread cheer to children and families who can’t go home for the holidays.
Mrs. Obama read the holiday classic 'Twas the Night Before Christmas and answered questions from children about her family's holiday traditions.
