HealthyChildren.org, the official American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Web site for parents, launched the inaugural issue of Healthy Children e-magazine this month.
The premier issue focuses on key back-to-school issues such as immunizations, school physicals, and the importance of breakfast. In addition to providing parents with reliable, pediatrician-backed guidance, the e-magazine provides readers with an interactive experience that includes multimedia content, engaging “quick tip” pop-ups as well as links to helpful resources.
This inaugural issue of HealthyChildren e-magazine was made possible through an independent grant from Merck.
The free e-magazine is mobile-optimized and can be accessed via the HealthyChildren app for Apple and Android smartphones and tablets. The HealthyChildren app includes select, on-the-go articles from HealthyChildren.org as well as several of the site’s unique features such as Find a Pediatrician and Ask the Pediatrician, and will soon include a variety of apps for parents, beginning with ADHD Tracker and Car Seat Checker. Automatic updates to the app will keep parents informed of future e-magazine issues, new features, or newly developed apps.
To access the e-magazine, download the HealthyChildren app on the iTunes and Google Play stores.
For those without smartphones, the e-magazine is also available as a pdf download.
