Come with your child in a stroller or backpack and walk with some of our community healthcare professionals to learn about health topics relating to your infants. All questions are welcomed!
We are proud to have Public Health Nurse Bernice Bova, Health Program Associate Alivia Coleman, Environmental Health Supervisor Maureen Whelan, Health Program Assistant Veronica Cortes and Pediatrician Louis Hart, M.D. These healthcare professionals will touch on topics such as Infant Growth and Development, Immunizations, Emergency Preparedness, Food Safety, and Lead Prevention.
“This is a fun way to ask questions, get tips and squeeze in some exercise all at the same time with your community partners” says Andrea Boissevain, Health Director.
“We hope to rally more pediatricians to join community-based programs like these to help understand and get in touch with the people we serve” said Louis Hart, M.D., Assistant Professor and Medical Director, office of Health Equity, Yale New Haven Health System. We look forward to seeing new moms and caregivers of infants.
