What's New at Hands


The Child Health Team at the Simcoe Muskoka Health Unit is on facebook

Posted on: March 5th, 2013

The Child Health Team at the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit has joined Facebook!

Play Together—Grow Together will be like an online drop-in centre for parents and caregivers to find sound advice from public health nurses and to share their own experiences and ideas with other parents.

The page focuses on issues of growth and development in infants and preschoolers. It will cover everything from nutrition to the latest research in positive parent-child interaction, and from playtime to resolving behaviour problems. Along the way, parents will pick up information about developmental screening and surveillance – so crucial in those critical years when a baby’s brain is building the foundations that will support her through the rest of her life.

A group of public health nurses and a dietitian in the health unit’s Child Health Team will be regularly contributing messages, with links to videos and other websites on child care and development. Parents, healthcare providers and community partners are all invited to “like” the page and Join the Conversation!
