Dr. Gig Chawla, chief of general pediatrics at Children’s Minnesota, provides tips for parents and students to prepare to head back to school.
Children’s Minnesota was excited to partner with Minneapolis and St. Paul public schools to offer two education sessions to school nurses. The goal of these two virtual events was to prepare school nurses to care for their students both mentally and physically as they start the school year during the COVID pandemic.
In early childhood, physical, cognitive, emotional and social development occur at a rate that far exceeds any other stage of human life.
From Saturday, August 24 – Friday, August 30, Twin Cities area Great Clips franchisees will host the 27th Annual Cut-a-thon, supporting the school re-entry program at Children’s. A portion of the proceeds from each haircut will help kids with cancer or other serious illnesses go back to school with confidence. The school re-entry program helps address the medical and emotional needs of a child returning to school after battling cancer or other serious illnesses. The program helps educate classmates, teachers and parents. Services often include providing resource materials, phone consultations and/or a visit to the school by a child life specialist. Designed for flexibility, the program tailors services to meet the needs of each child and family. Locate the salon nearest to you and call ahead to confirm they’re participating in the Cut-a-Thon. Stylists will also be donating all or a portion of their tips.
