Kids Health

The Nemours Center for Children's Health Media, a national leader in health education, creates KidsHealth.org as well as other online, print, and video programs.

One of the things that makes KidsHealth special is that it’s really three sites in one: with sections for parents, for kids, and for teens. Included in each section is a Q&A area. All the information is available in Spanish.

The PARENTS section addresses:

  • General Health
  • Infections
  • Emotions & Behavior
  • Growth & Development
  • Nutrition & Fitness
  • Recipes
  • Pregnancy & Newborns
  • Medical Problems
  • Positive Parenting
  • First Aid & Safety
  • Doctors & Hospitals, and
  • Medications.

The KIDS section addresses:

  • Feelings
  • Staying Healthy
  • Illnesses
  • Growing Body & Mind
  • Kids Talk
  • Cooking & Recipes
  • People, Places & Things That Help
  • Staying Safe
  • Movies & Games
  • Health Problems, Kids' Dictionary of Medical Words, and
  • Health Problems of Grown-Ups.
The TEEN tab addresses:
  • Teens Home
  • Your Body
  • Your Mind
  • Sexual Health
  • Food & Fitness, Recipes
  • Drugs & Alcohol
  • Expert Answers, Diseases & Conditions, Infections, School & Jobs, and Staying Safe.
KidsHealth provides families with accurate, up-to-date, and jargon-free health information they can use.

"My eCoach has proved to be a simple and easy to use resource for designing websites for various lesson topics. Before I was introduced to My eCoach, I had no prior knowledge on how to design a website. Now that I have a membership to it, I know that I can quickly log-on to design a website where I can post resources, weblinks, documents, images, video/audio samples, etc.

My students have greatly enjoyed working on the websites that I’ve created (little do they know how easily I was able to make them because of the "Clone this" feature). They especially appreciate the fact that they can leave comments on the pages. And what’s great is that I can monitor each of the comments before I allow them to be published."
