Healthy Kids Forum

Summer time means vacations and fun in the sun! But it's also time to make sure your children are caught up on their immunizations before the new school year begins. And it's a great opportunity to ensure they are enjoying the most nutritious diet, and getting the physical activity they need to be their healthiest.

Health professionals from the Madison County Health Department will tell you all you need to know about childhood immunizations, and will cover other common childhood health concerns, and answer your questions. Additionally, Freida Houck, a Dr. Sears Certified L.E.A.N. Coach will be providing information, and answering questions about children's nutrition.

All attendees will be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift certificate to use on a L.E.A.N class about children's, or expecting mothers' nutrion.

This program is free and open to the public, but we request that you please RSVP using the form provided below, so we know how many people to expect.

It will take place in the second floor events room of the Main branch. Please contact Luisa at lmorenilla [at] hmpcl [dot] org with any questions about this program.

This program is part of our Help Yourself to Health Initiative. Please read more about the initiative below.

Huntsville - Madison County Public Library's “Help Yourself to Health” Initiative

Did you know that people ask more questions about their cell phone plan then they ask their doctor? That’s about to change with Huntsville Madison County Library’s Help Yourself to Health initiative.  This program provides access to valuable health information for the community.  

“Health literacy plays a pivotal role in the lives and well being of our community. It’s important that the Library is there to provide the information.” said Laurel Best, Executive Director of Huntsville Madison County Public Library.

Help Yourself to Health is a year-long project that features special events, educational forums, community outreach programs and access to Medline Plus Health Library, a non commercial information source.  All events and forums are free to the public.

“We want to empower people with health knowledge.” Rosalind Lett, Associate Director of Public Services at the Huntsville Madison County Public Library, commented on the initiative. “So when people talk to their healthcare professionals they can ask the right questions.”
