CHKD's community outreach program offers a variety of educational programs and resources for parents, grandparents, coaches, professionals, community members, children and youth to support the development of healthy and happy families.
CHKD parent educators, pediatricians and health experts provide classes, webinars, trainings, and educational resources that address common parent concerns, such as discipline, nutrition, injuries and healthy development. For information on parent education and professional training contact Michele.Tryon@chkd.org
Staff provide and coordinate fun, educational activities for children in schools and in the community, such as the CHKD on Tour program and school assemblies that promote health, fitness and character building.
NEW in the Fall of 2014 CHKD will launch the Kohl's Kind Kid's campaign to promote kindness in our homes, schools and communities.
Look for us at community health fairs throughout Hampton Roads. Health fair requests should be sent to community outreach program manager Sam Fabian. Please include preferred date, time, location, audience type and expected number of participants.
