Vaccines: Well-Child Visits Are Essential | CDC

In recent months, families have been doing their part by staying at home as much as possible to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

In the United States, National Child Health Day occurs each year on the first Monday in October. The day recognizes the care and guidance children need to grow strong and healthy.

Each child deserves to be the healthiest he or she can be. From the food they eat to the words they hear, children require support and opportunities to grow. Parents often worry about chronic disease, accidents or childhood illnesses. At the same time, they focus on a child’s mental health and general health. Whether it’s their environment, the food they eat or how much TV they watch, the day is an excellent opportunity to support the children in your life.

Our MCAH staff attended the virtual kickoff seminar for their annual Maternal Child and Adolescent Health conference this morning, and will be participating with weekly seminars through the first week of November.
