CHKD's community outreach program offers a variety of programs and
resources for parents, grandparents, coaches, professionals and kids to
assist in developing a healthy and happy family.
CHKD parent educators, our pediatricians and other health experts provide classes, webinars, trainings, educational material and address common parenting concerns, such as discipline, managing angry feelings, sports injuries and other medical concerns, as well as when it's time to call the doctor.
Staff also provide fun educational activities for kids, such as the Kohl's Fit Kids program and CHKD on Tour program in schools.
Look for us at community health fairs throughout Hampton Roads. Health fair requests should be sent to community outreach program coordinator Sam Fabian. Please include preferred date, time, location, audience type and expected number of participants.
