Your Child’s Health Is Essential

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles knows back to school may look different this year.  Even though parents may not know exactly when kids are physically returning to school, we do know that our children’s health is essential.

At a well-visit, your pediatrician may check your child’s growth and development milestones, administer vaccines and talk to you about your child’s nutrition, behavior issues, sleeping patterns and general health and well-being. Consistent well-child visits help your child’s pediatrician identify your family’s needs and get your child the help they need early on.

“Especially in these times, when many people are under financial stress, and children are away from their normal routines of school and friends, these visits are a good way to check in on how our families are doing and see if we can refer them to any needed resources,” says Dr. Mona Patel, MD. Many offices are also offering virtual visits, allowing you to discuss your child’s health with their physician from the comfort of your home. Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is prepared to keep families and children healthy and safe, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Find a doctor and for more information, visit CHLA.org.
