Insure Kids Now!:"Your children may be eligible for free or low-cost health insurance! You work hard to provide for your children and want to make sure they grow up strong, smart and healthy.

Your state, and every state in the nation, has a health insurance program for infants, children and teens. The insurance is available to children in working families, including families that include individuals with a variety of immigration status.

Why Doctors Order Lab Tests, Kidshealth.org:"Can't doctors tell what's wrong with my child by just examining him? Most of the time, taking a history and performing a physical examination provide the information a doctor needs to evaluate how a child is doing or to understand the cause of an illness. Physicians spend years learning which questions are important to ask - and the meaning of the answers. In the case of an ill child, doctors are likely to ask when the illness first began, what the first symptoms were, how they changed over time, and often dozens of other specific questions that will shed light on the cause of the problem.


New Food Allergy Research Consortium Focuses on Peanut Allergy, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID):"The only advice doctors can give to the 4 percent of Americans with potentially life-threatening food allergies is to avoid the culprit food, often nuts or shellfish. But that may change as researchers in a new Food Allergy Research Consortium, announced today, strive to develop therapies to treat and prevent food allergy. The consortium, led by Hugh Sampson, M.D., at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, will receive approximately $17 million over five years from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health. In addition, a five-year NIAID grant totaling approximately $5 million to the Emmes Corporation, of Rockville, MD, will fund a statistical center to support the consortium."
