Research

Clinicians in our Hypertension Program at Boston Children's are currently taking part in a multisite trial to evaluate the safety and appropriate dosing of a new antihypertensive agent for the pediatric population.

Our clinicians are also involved with:

  • Assessing our approach to the evaluation and treatment of children with hypertension, ensuring optimal quality of care
  • Educating  physicians, physicians in training, clinical assistants, nurses and other staff members about the appropriate method to measure children’s blood pressure and how to distinguish normal from elevated blood pressure values

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
