KIDS BARCELONA is a young person’s advisory group (YPAG) promoted by Barcelona Children’s Hospital Sant Joan de Déu, one of the leading medical centers in Europe for childhood and adolescence.
Our team is composed of teenagers from twelve to seventeen years old. Half of them are patients from our hospital and the other part adolescents with a huge sensibility about health issues.
All of them are members of our Scientific Council and their responsibilities are the contribution to improve our scientific projects from the patient perspective around 4 main pillars: biomedicine, research, innovation and clinical trials.
We offer periodical training sessions to our team held by our main researchers and dedicated professionals to the specific field and we provide them communication and presentation skills.
KIDS Barcelona works very closely with the children’s schools with the aim to promote scientific sensibility, to promote innovation as a transversal subject in the educative curricula and also to encourage the possibility to train future researchers and clinicians.
