Health teaching resources

Posted

Sometimes students come to me with health questions like " I have high cholesterol what can I do to improve it?" I educate the students but I would like to give them more resources like a print out or websites kind of like discharge instructions. Are there any websites or resources anyone uses to aid them in education on health topics?

I lovekidshealth.org. They have a site for parents, kids, and teens. I use a lot of their tools as inspiration for bulletin boards and have printed out some of their materials as a resource.

I've used medlineplus.gov since that is the website I use at the hospital too for our discharge instructions. Kidshealth.org sounds like a good one too! I'll start using that one too!

OK great! I have used them as well just wanted to make sure I am on the right track! I am going to check out more on kids health.org then because I definitely need some more inspiration for November bulletin board!

Thanks so much I will add that to my resources! I do like that kids health.gov has a teen, kids, and parent section because I have 1st through 12th grade so it is nice to have age appropriate information.
