Healthy children are more likely to become healthy adults

Health Action Council, in conjunction with UnitedHealthcare, CVS Health and the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA), launched the Healthy Kids Campaign, dedicated to promoting healthy kids and healthy families through five key preventive areas:

  1. Childhood Immunizations & Flu Vaccines - Many kids have missed required immunizations due to COVID-19, and a "twindemic" of COVID-19 and flu is especially concerning.

  2. Well-Child Visits - Kids need regular doctor visits to ensure they are developing properly, but many well-child visits have been canceled due to COVID-19.

  3. Prevention of Teen Suicide - Teen suicide rates have risen due to added stress and additional time at home from COVID-19 where teens can access firearms, medications and alcohol.

  4. Dental Hygiene - Establishing good oral hygiene practices starts when a child is young.

  5. Healthy Habits - Creating a regular routine is essential for children, especially to combat major disruptions from the pandemic.

In each of these areas, early action makes a DIFFERENCE in a child’s health!
