Welcome to Thriving, Boston Children’s Hospital blog devoted to all things pediatric health care.

Check in often for perspective from Boston Children’s experts on the latest pediatric health news, the latest cutting-edge research impacting the health of kids and adults alike and videos about our amazing patients and families.

The Thriving blog is a way for hospital staff to share their thoughts and opinions, some of which may touch on political, social and cultural issues when they overlap with healthcare or pediatric health. Every post is the opinion of the author and may not necessarily reflect the official stance of the hospital. Any Boston Children’s Hospital staff member interested in submitting a potential blog topic or possibly writing a guest post should get in touch with our editorial staff via email: thriving@childrens.harvard.edu
