Homework For Parents -- Your Child's Back-To-School Health Checklist
WASHINGTON, Aug. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Summer fun is nearing an end. It's almost time to put away the swimsuits and dust off the book bags. More than 50 million students will head into the classrooms in a few weeks. The nation's emergency physicians say now is the time to get everyone's health in check.
"For many, the focus is on back to school clothes and supplies, which is important," said Jay Kaplan, MD, FACEP, president of the American College of Emergency Physicians. "But it's equally, if not more important to also take time to schedule routine doctor visits (for more information) and to make sure that your child's health information is all organized."
