Children & Teens
Child Health Day is October 7th – join us for an interactive event!
Protecting the health and wellbeing of your children and teaching them to be advocates of their health is one of the most important things you can do. Parents are a child's first teacher and teaching your children about leading a healthy life should start early. Learning about the health topics that affect your child at different stages can be challenging but it is essential; and you don't have to do it alone.
We are here to provide current, evidence-based health information so you are equipped to make the best possible health decision for your child and then with your child as they age. If you have questions about why immunizations are so vital or about what your child should be eating, you can find helpful resources here.
