If you are bringing family members with you to Clinical Congress, the ACS has family-friendly programs to help enhance your experience. These programs include:
Camp ACS will be available for children ages 6 months to 17 years. ACCENT on Children’s Arrangements will oversee the program at the Westin in the Galleria (adjacent to the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center). Daily activities include arts and crafts, entertainment, and interactive games. Camp ACS will be available Sunday, October 22–Wednesday, October 25, 7:30 am–10:00 pm. Register for childcare services.
As an add-on to Camp ACS, Little Medical School will offer educational enrichment prepared by board-certified physicians and educators. Children ages 2 years and older will have the opportunity to explore the world of medicine, science, and health in an engaging and fun way. Little Medical School will be held at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center on Monday, October 23, 9:00 am–12:00 pm. Register for Little Medical School.
A room for nursing mothers will be available during Clinical Congress (Room 51, Exhibit Level).
Children younger than 18 months will be allowed in session rooms when accompanied by a parent or guardian. Guardians are asked to maintain a professional and disturbance-free environment at all times, including immediately stepping out of the room if the infant becomes fussy. Children between the ages of 18 months and 16 years are not permitted in scientific sessions.
At no time are children of any age permitted in the Exhibit Hall.
All family members are invited to participate in Taste of the City, a complimentary capstone event of Clinical Congress, where attendees can sample the cuisine and culture of the host location while networking with colleagues. This event will be on Wednesday, October 25, 5:30–7:30 pm. Casual dress is encouraged.
