Marcus Smart, Boston Celtics Guard and founder of Marcus Smart’s YounGameChanger Foundation, unveiled his second Smart Center, a program of Marcus Smart’s YounGameChanger Foundation on Sept. 6, at Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center. Designed as a portable cart that can move between Tufts MC’s pediatric inpatient units and outpatient clinics, as well as the pediatric emergency department, the Smart Center is filled with electronics to provide patients and their families access to technology and other resources as a means for relaxation, communication and therapy during their hospital stays.
“It’s important for kids and their families to have outlets like these, especially in a hospital–it serves as a welcomed distraction and form of entertainment during their hospital stays.” – Marcus Smart
This Smart Center was made possible by D’Ambrosio Brown LLP.
