Back-to-school health tips

Tips from Dr. Robert London, WellCare’s Chief Medical Director in South Carolina, to help make children’s school year a healthier one:

  • Schedule preventive care check-ups. Consult with your primary care doctor on all the clinical preventive services your children need.
  • Schedule a physical exam if your children will be involved in school athletic programs.
  • Review immunization records. You will need official copies of immunizations records to enroll your child in school.
  • Stress the importance of eating healthy and participating in a routine physical activity with your children.
