Boston Children's Hospital's Injury Prevention Program

The Injury Prevention Program at Children's is committed to decreasing the incidence of injuries, including electrical and thermal burns, through community-based education efforts, distributing safety materials and conducting research into what works best.

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.”
