BOSTON, Mass, with many of the best and best-known hospitals in the United States, has taken steps to make sure its citizens become aware of them early.
At a special event in March called Children and Hospitals Day, the Children's Museum of Boston and a local affiliate of the Association for the Care of Children's Health (based in Mt Royal, NJ), aided by dozens of volunteer local health care professionals, gave young visitors and their parents a chance to learn about medical equipment and procedures and general health practices.
