At the apex of the disease, the child needs to be hospitalized for about 21 days to recover, and it was in idle time that the team found a space that could be used for teaching a better quality of life.

"It was in pediatrics that the idea of ​​the project. We try to use this spare time of the child in something constructive to your health. Mascots think of to give face to the project, which we call the Class Valente, and from them we developed several brochures, videos, plays with puppets and even an interactive website to teach children how to have a healthy life in ten steps, "he explained.

In this first phase, the program will act only on Strengthen Into, but the pediatrician assured that you want to expand it to other locations. "The site is available to all, and not only to patients Into. We intend to distribute future, these booklets in public schools, to race in support of child health, pediatric training to deal with children's bone scan, but rather we are seeking partners who support the program, "he said.
