JUST FOR KIDS: Kids need health care tailored to them

Children are not small adults.  They need health care that is tailored to their unique needs, involves their parents from start to finish and is provided in places designed to be kid-sized and child-friendly.

In Tennessee the mortality rate is higher than the national infant mortality rate.  Reducing infant deaths will happen only if people throughout the community play a part. 

WJHL and Niswonger Children's Hospital have partnered to provide information about infant safety to the public.

The highest number of infant deaths in our area is related to co-sleeping and child passenger safety. 

Over the next three months we will focus on simple prevention tips to keep your kids safe.
