Welcome to August 2022! As we head into the heat of the summer, we're celebrating National Immunization Awareness Month with one of our members' favorite resources...
HealthyChildren.org is the parenting website produced by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), a 501c3 non-profit comprised of over 67,000 members dedicated to attaining optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. The AAP was founded in June 1930 by 35 pediatricians who met in Detroit in response to the need for an independent pediatric forum to address children's needs. When the AAP was established, the idea that children have special developmental and health needs was a new one. Preventive health practices now associated with child care – such as immunizations and regular health exams – were only just beginning to change the custom of treating children as "miniature adults." Today the HealthyChildren.org website is a favorite resources for many of Agrin Health's members for great articles, webinars, child symptom checker and more super-helpful tools.
