Health Professionals NYC Celebrates Child Health Day
Urgent Care Center Health Professionals NYC commemorates Child Health Day with tips for living a healthy lifestyle
QUEENS, NY, October 03, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Health Professionals NYC, a one-of-a-kind combined medical Urgent Care and Dentistry clinic, will be commemorating Child Health Day on October 7, 2013. In 1928, President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed this day, the first Monday in October, to be a national day of observance, meant to increase public awareness of child health issues.
Every year, organizations who are involved in childhood wellness are urged to join together in honor of Child Health Day to help increase awareness of child health issues such as prenatal care, injury prevention, immunizations, and healthy lifestyle.
American healthcare organizations hold events to provide communities with necessary resources to improve childhood well being. The Health Resources and Services Administration offers a wide array of information for parents and schools about many issues, including child obesity prevention and healthy lifestyle choices. Today, according to the Center for Disease Control, approximately one-third of American children and teenagers are overweight or obese. This rate is now nearly triple the rate recorded in 1963. Obesity in childhood increases the likelihood of health problems later in life, such as diabetes.
"Here at Health Professionals NYC we treat many children everyday with preventable ailments, things that can be avoided with a healthier lifestyle and a knowledge of simple safety tools. The health of our children is very important; they are our future," says Health Professionals NYC Chief Operating Officer Emanuel Inoyatov.
Health Professionals NYC is a unique facility combining the best features of an urgent medical clinic and a top-notch dental practice, accepting most insurances. It is a one-stop-shop for care, serving the needs of the NYC community with professionalism, speed, and respect.
On the clinical side, Health Professionals NYC offers fast and affordable medical and dental care with no emergency room wait. With average wait times in NYC emergency rooms getting more obscene by the day, more New Yorkers are looking to urgent care clinics, who can provide care on the clinical level of a hospital but in a more much more timely and cost-effective manner.
