Kids being treated at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta can now view a new entertaining and educational TV channel courtesy of a partnership with San Diego Zoo Global.

The partnership was unveiled June 20 in the Zone at Children’s at Scottish Rite in Atlanta with Rick Schwartz, San Diego Zoo Global’s ambassador, and a visit with live animals, including a kinkajou, eagle owl and raccoon.

Children’s Healthcare is among five hospitals across the nation getting the channel through a gift from Denny Sanford. For more information, visit www.choa.org.
