Kids at Heart Family Dinners

Kids at Heart Family Dinners are open to all Kids at Heart families and all patient families on the Cardiac Step-down Unit or the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU). 

They give patients and families who are currently in the hospital a chance to:

  • Spend time with families who have been at Children's in the past and who have faced similar issues.
  • Enjoy a 30-45 minute educational presentation on cardiac topics or resources.  
  • Eat a group dinner, which we provide free of charge.

Date and Time
The 4th Tuesday of the month, Jan. through Oct., unless otherwise noted.
6 to 7:30 p.m.

Egleston hospital, first floor
Conference center, classroom 5
