The Board of Visitors grants, like the patients and families at Children’s National, are remarkably diverse. Past awards have supported research, cutting-edge equipment and technology, pediatric surgical robots, professional development, educational support, and the transformation of Little Tykes cars and wagons to accommodate devices for oxygen, IV poles and monitors for our smallest patients in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
