Keeping you and your family healthy starts
with regular checkups and monitoring physical and emotional development.
YOU ARE YOUR CHILD'S FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANT TEACHER
Your family’s well-being is shaped by the healthy food choices, regular exercise, and care you provide. See a doctor regularly during pregnancy, keep all health appointments and make sure your family is safe at all times.
What Can I Do?
Starting at birth, schedule and attend regular well-child visits to find and prevent health problems. Make health a part of your daily routine by exercising, sharing healthy meal times and keeping your family safe. Don’t forget about a healthy smile! Help keep teeth and gums healthy by visiting the dentist every six months, beginning at one year old or at the first tooth.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has a schedule of well-child care visits available online at www.HealthyChildren.org. By using this schedule, you will know when to take your child to the doctor, what to expect at each visit, questions to ask the doctor, and learn about preventive health.
HOW DO I KNOW?
If you have challenges finding insurance, doctors, or guiding your family’s health, a Community Health Advocate is available through your Hub to answer questions and work with you to strengthen your family’s wellness. Your Hub team also has a Public Health Nurse to provide health assessments, discuss options and connect you with community resources.
Contact the Hub health staff by visiting your Hub or by calling 1-800-844-4491.
