Nobody wants to think about bad things happening to their children, but sometimes it helps to be armed with information and resources should something unforseen happen. I’ve always said that I feel lucky to have such an awesome hospital nearby that is especially for the young ones…Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati is an award-winning hospital that people come from all over to bring their children to be treated there. It really is top-notch. Not only are the professionals at Children’s there to mend what is broken and heal the sick, but they also strive to provide preventative care and help educate the community about medical issues. In fact, they have a great Q&A session coming up with two renowned doctors that would be perfect for parents of student athletes to check out.
