Millis Regional Health Education Center Adds Web Health Library
The Millis Regional Health Education Center has announced it has added a comprehensive library of health information for consumers on its Web site, www.millishealth.com. The site now features thousands of medically reviewed articles, animations, features, and news written to be age-appropriate for three distinct audiences: parents, kids and teens.
“The Millis Center, a part of High Point Regional Health System, is pleased to be able to make its Web site an even richer resource for area families. As a leading provider of expert health care for children, we understand how important it is to reach out to kids and teens with information written just for them,” comments Dana Fitzgerald, Education & Marketing Coordinator at the Millis Center. “Teachers will also find the information to be a great resource for lesson plans and homework help.”
The site features information across a broad spectrum of topics including parenting, general health, medical problems, developmental, behavioral, emotional, nutrition & fitness, and first aid & safety. In addition to the comprehensive library of age-appropriate articles, some of the unique features that users will discover are: Medical Research News for Parents, My Body, Pregnancy & Newborns, In the Spotlight (seasonal issues), Word (a glossary of terms and definitions), Daily Q&A for parents, and Daily Brain Buzz for kids.
The Millis Center is using the health Web site through a 2-year grant from the Nemours Foundation, and is the only such program in this part of North Carolina. The Millis Center hosts classes of children for interactive health education programs from throughout the region during the school year. The programs are funded by High Point Regional Health System’s Endowment Program. For information about any of the programs at the Center, call Dana Fitzgerald at 878-6000, X2642.
