About Children’s Health Board

Children’s Health Board works with Children’s National to advance the health and well-being of children in our community, especially those most in need, through advocacy, education, prevention and early intervention. Over the past 20 years, Children’s Health Board has awarded approximately $5 million in grants to more than 200 Children’s National Medical Center programs. Our grants have turned early ideas into proven models that have attracted support from leading investors in improved health outcomes for children nationwide.
