Tablets for SHC vans
Eagle Scout candidate to help Young Shriners
NEW PORT RICHEY — Gulf High School junior Joshua Adkins knows how difficult undergoing treatment and care at Shriners Hospitals for Children can be for a child, so he wants to make the ride to the hospital less traumatic.
His Eagle Scout project will equip Shriners vans with Windows tablets so children can watch movies, listen to music or play games on their rides to and from the hospital.
Joshua benefited from the expert pediatric care provided in the child-friendly setting and remembers how stressful rides to the hospital can be. He underwent two surgeries and made countless doctor visits to Shriners Hospitals for Children to correct his Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease, a childhood hip disorder.
