IS IT POSSIBLE TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN FROM CHRONIC ILLNESS?
PROTECTING OUR CHILDREN IS NOT ONLY POSSIBLE, IT IS NECESSARY!
Health experts agree there is an urgent need to implement targeted interventions aimed at preventing chronic childhood illnesses. Our children endure many infectious illnesses during the early developmental years of their lives. Today, however, our children are facing a new threat to their health as chronic illness is affecting more and more young Americans.
