HBA Paediatrics Participates in Book by the Portuguese Navy

Pediatria do HBA participa em livro da Marinha portuguesa

Drawings by inpatient children in Hospital Beatriz Ângelo (HBA) were included in the book “Marinheiros da Esperança” (Sailors of Hope), a project launched by the Portuguese Navy in the scope of the celebration of its 700 years of existence.

The book, that tells the story of the relationship of the Portuguese people with the sea along the centuries, includes the main facts and figures of navigation and is entirely illustrated with dozens of works by children and young patients interned in paediatric services of the National Health Network.

The official launch of the book will be on February 26, at 17:00 p.m., at Casa da Balança (Instalações Gerais da Marinha), in Lisbon, where HBA will be represented by Mécia Barradas, nurse in charge of paediatrics inpatient in this hospital.

In the meanwhile, the work can be consulted here.
