Flushing, NY, September 27, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- New York-based healthcare marketing agency SIX22 is proud to spread awareness about Child Health Day this October 7, 2013. Proclaimed a day of National Observance by President Calvin Coolidge in 1928, it was observed on May 1st until 1960, when it was transferred to the first Monday of October. As part of the annual presidential proclamation for the day, organizations interested in child wellness are invited to join together on Child Health Day to help increase awareness of child health issues such as prenatal care, adolescent health, preventing injuries, immunizations, healthy eating and healthy lifestyle.
Healthcare organizations across the nation celebrate the day through various activities and events. The Health Resources and Services Administration provides educational resources for parents and schools about issues such as child obesity prevention and healthy choices. Today, about one in three American kids and teens is overweight or obese, according to the Center for Disease Control. That is nearly triple the rate recorded in 1963, a major risk factor for serious health consequences later in life.
“Teaching children healthy eating habits and healthy physical activity is an important part of their development, as they will carry those lessons through life into adulthood. With just small early preventative steps, we can prevent many future health-related problems for our children,” said Jason Newman, CEO of SIX22.
