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.


“Children and Diabetes.” According to the American Diabetes Association, one in three of today’s 10-year-olds will develop diabetes at some point in their lifetime; one in two African American and Hispanic youngsters will develop the disease.  The presentation will include guidelines for nurses and school personnel to assist students to self-manage their disease, and participate in trips, sports and other school activities.


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