Thursday, September 7, 2017
Boston, MA – (September 6, 2017) – On Wednesday afternoon, Celtics’ Marcus
Smart unveiled his second Smart Center, sponsored by D’Ambrosio Brown LLP, at Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical
The Smart Center, a program of Marcus Smart’s
YounGameChanger Foundation, is a portable cart that will move between Tufts MC's
pediatric inpatient units and outpatient clinics. 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 will serve as a welcomed distraction and form of
entertainment. I am looking forward to making Smart Centers available in more
Boston area hospitals,” said Marcus Smart during the ribbon cutting ceremony.
One of the primary focus of Marcus Smart's YounGameChanger Foundation is
to provide families of seriously or chronically ill children with encouragement
and life-changing experiences.
