Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween is an exciting time of year for kids. Here are some tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) to help ensure they have a safe holiday.


Safe Sleep for Newborns

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is one of the most heart-breaking events families endure. Unfortunately, it has affected many of our families and prevention is never foolproof. However, following safe sleep habits reduces the incidence of SIDS. You will see new banners in the office reminding all of us about safe sleep for newborns and you can find more great information at charlieskids.org


Great Advice on Nutrition and Activity 

Check out these great videos on healthy eating and activity from our friends at Children's Hospital.  They are short, entertaining and packed with useful information!

Counseling in Our Office

In November, we will welcome Abby Schaber as a provider.  She is a counselor and will be in our Crestview Hills office on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  The past few years she worked in the Campbell County Schools as well as in private practice.  If you believe your child could benefit from an appointment with her please schedule with one of our doctors.  They will determine if it is best to see Abby or if someone else would serve you better.  We are happy to offer this service right here, making these appointments more convenient for you and more comfortable for your child.

Happy Travels

We want to help ensure all of your travels are safe and fun. Staying healthy during your trip and upon your return can help. We now offer travel medicine visits and some travel vaccines in the office. We like to have as much notice before travel as possible in case your child needs a series. Call our office to schedule an appointment.  We will work with you based on your itinerary to determine what vaccines are needed.  We will also provide other helpful tips about safety while traveling to your particular destination.

Pediatric Associates Welcomes Michael Janensch, PA-C

We are excited to welcome the newest provider to the Pediatric Associates family, Mike Janensch. Mike completed his Physician Assistant training at DeSales University in Center Valley, PA and most recently worked in a rheumatology practice in Petoskey, MI.  But Mike is returning to his roots by joining us.  He initially planned on pediatrics as his chosen field and also grew up in Kentucky.  Welcome home, Mike!

 

Upcoming Flu Clinics

We will be conducting flu vaccine clinics again this year on Saturday mornings from 8am until 1pm at Crestview Hills down under on October 19th and November 16th with a new addition of Tuesday 10/22 from 5-7:00 down under at CVH. Please call the office or use the Patient Portal to set up an appointment time.

Due to production issues and limited national supply the flu mist will not be available.

We ask that you dress your child in short sleeve shirts, the morning you come to the clinic. You will be asked to fill out a flu consent form for each child.

Expanding Check-Up Hours

We know how challenging it can be to squeeze in all the responsibilities that you and your family have. Our patients have asked for more availability for school and routine check-ups later in the day and we heard you! Pediatric Associates is proud to announce that we have availability for Tuesday and Thursday evening check-ups in the Crestview Hills office.
