Celebrate Children’s Health Day with Incredible and Free Resources from Sesame Street

Elmo and friends are here to help! – thanks to the good people of The National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC)!

For those who have never heard of the NACHC, they do some pretty important and great work.

The National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) aims to “promote efficient, high quality, comprehensive health care that is accessible, culturally and linguistically competent, community directed, and patient centered for all.”

And they sponsor National Health Center Week, an annual celebration with the goal of raising awareness about the mission and accomplishments of America’s health centers over the past five decades.

And Saturday August 18th is Children’s Health Day, and is (patient)worthy of our attention!

How is Sesame Street helping?

This year, the NACHC and Health Center Week partnered with  Sesame Street in Communities (SSIC) for Children’s Health Day, to deliver laughter and learning to children and families who need it most.

SSIC is a bilingual, multimedia initiative that uses the power of their famed Muppets and proven content to reach children across the country with critical educational materials.

Their website features more than 800 free activities ranging from ABC’s & 123’s, to health and wellness, to tougher topics like coping with traumatic situations.

Children with rare diseases have an extraordinary burden – but also an amazing opportunity:  While no child should have to endure the life-altering consequences of managing a rare disease, it does offer them unique chances to form healthy, informed habits and become experts of their mind and bodies from a very early age!

There, the SSIC resources are such an amazing gift, which will help build resilience skills in young kids and the adults who care for them.

So, please surf the site to find printables, videos, articles and so much more to use with kids and families during National Health Center Week!
