St. Louis Children’s Hospital will bring their expertise in serving the unique health needs of young people, from newborns to adolescents, to Saint Louis Science Center’s Family Med School classes. The partnership brings families a new opportunity to discover a full range of medical topics from the heart to physical therapy for young athletes through hands-on activities.

“We are thrilled to join the Science Center’s Family Medical School to continue our legacy of educating our community – whether it’s the practical benefits of first-aid training or debunking concussion myths or helping our youth understand and explore future healthcare career paths,” says Carolyn Schainker, manager of Events and Activities at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. “The Science Center is one of St. Louis’ jewels, and we are proud to partner with them to help keep families healthy and safe year round!”
