TEACH Expands to Second Hospital in Michigan

The non-profit now has volunteer college students and medical students conducting science
experiments with sick children in hospitals in five different states.

Ann Arbor, MI, February 19, 2018 --( TEACH (Together Educating All Children in
Hospitals), a nonprofit organization that creates an outlet for hospitalized children to passionately engage
with the sciences through fun, interactive experiments, announced its expansion to a second hospital in
the state of Michigan, the Children's Hospital of Michigan, which is located in Detroit. Volunteers have
already been conducting science experiments with ill children in C.S. Mott Children's Hospital in Ann

“One child asked if we could come back tomorrow, because it was so much fun,” said Jared Silverberg,
President of the Michigan TEACH branch. TEACH plans on reaching over 100 children a year between
the two hospitals in Michigan alone.

According to the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project, in 2012, there were nearly 5.9 million
hospitalizations for children in the United States. Without the educational and social environments that
schools and day-to-day life provides, the days spent stuck in hospitals seem to be endless for pediatric
patients. Children are often left isolated from their family and peers, with little opportunity to nurture the
curiosity that so often defines childhood.

Children use everyday objects to understand biological concepts such as, respiration by using household
materials, balloons and plastic bottles to build models of lungs. In many cases, the children save the
instructions to continue to perform the experiment even after the volunteers leave. Student volunteers
sign-up to visit hospitals and perform these and other science modules with the pediatric patients,
bringing education, energy and excitement to pediatric patients.

TEACH has been able to serve over 1700 children in 22 hospitals in the U.S. and Israel but hopes to
expand in the coming year, to reach even more children. To support this endeavor, a campaign has been
launched to spread TEACH's mission and to secure the financial support necessary to bring educational
and entertaining activities to hundreds of additional children.

In addition to expanding to additional hospitals, TEACH is looking for more students who would like to
get involved with the organization. If you are looking for a way to make a difference in a child's life,
please consider joining TEACH. If you would like to become a hospital leader, volunteer, bring TEACH
to a hospital near you, or you are an organization that would like to collaborate with TEACH, contact the
