This weekend, Children’s Hospital Boston launches Milagros para Niños, a three-day community event specifically for the Spanish-speaking community around Boston. The event includes a Radiothon on Friday and Saturday, and a Latino Family Festival at Fenway Park on Sunday from 12-6 pm, where families can celebrate the Latino culture and learn about staying healthy.
Hispanic children in the United States face some serious health risks, such as diabetes, tuberculosis, high blood pressure, asthma and obesity. About 20 percent of Children’s patients are Latino and 65 percent of our patients at Martha Eliot Health Center are Latino.
