At Meridian, we understand what it takes to raise children and keep them healthy and safe. With leaders in Child and Family Advocacy (including child abuse prevention) at the local, state, and national levels, we support our communities by offering free programs for parents and children to keep them educated about safety, nutrition, fitness, and positive thinking.
Doctor Bernard is the Director of Fun and Good Health at K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital. He and his pals Hopscotch and Picatso, make their rounds to schools and communities across Monmouth and Ocean counties teaching children how to stay healthy and fit, eat right, and be safe. By enrolling your child to be a member of the Pawsitive Action Team, they can receive free gifts, fun games and invitations to special events throughout the year. Sign up and join the team!
Throughout the year, numerous classes are held featuring our pediatric experts covering various topics including injury prevention, asthma, diabetes, autism, digestive diseases, epilepsy and other chronic conditions. In addition, specialized training programs are also offered including CPR, Babysitting, and much more. To learn more about upcoming events, call 1-800-560-9990 or visit our online event calendar.
