Protect Our Children: A Message from the Nation’s Children’s Hospitals

The message below appeared in the Sunday, Aug. 29, edition of the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times.

Dr. Patrick Frias, president and CEO of Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego, joined 67 of his colleagues — presidents, CEOs and executive directors of our nation’s children’s hospitals — in a plea to help protect our children.

The simple acts of getting vaccinated, wearing masks at school and during large gatherings, and practicing hand washing and social distancing will go a long way toward relieving the burden on our children’s hospitals and keeping our kids safe.
