William Paterson University and St. Joseph's Healthcare System Present Children's Health Issues Workshops

St. Joseph's Healthcare System and William Paterson University's Center For Continuing and Professional Education will host a series of five spring workshops that focus on a range of children's health issues. Held at the University's Valley Road campus,  The Children's Health Series,  It's All About The Kids, will include discussions of children and internet safety,  diabetes, attention deficit disorder and  school safety. A panel of pediatricians from St. Joseph's Children's Hospital will participate in an open discussion with seminar attendees on children's health and enabling children from other countries and cultures to adapt to America. The workshops are open to teachers, school nurses, guidance counselors and other school staff.

 

"Ask the Doctors!" A panel of pediatricians will answer questions and concerns related to youngsters' healthy development and well-being.  They will share experiences and suggest strategies for welcoming and engaging children and families from other countries and cultures who have recently moved to New Jersey. This presentation offers an opportunity to enjoy a lively and enlightening discussion with young doctors from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures who are also parents of young children. Dennis Kuo, MD, director of medical education, director of residency program, is the panel moderator and will be joined by three physicians in training in St. Joseph's Children's Hospital.

 

Workshop is located at 1600 Valley Road in Wayne. Cost per workshop is $20 and pre-registration is required.
