The First Annual Health Promotion in Day Care Conference (Washington, D.C., April 7, 1984). Conference Proceedings Report.
Hammonds, Karl E.; Brathwaite, Rudolph L.
Conducted to disseminate information about health care issues in the day care environment, the First Annual Health Promotion in Day Care Conference was attended by approximately 200 health care providers, parents, and advocates in the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area. Health needs of the total child were addressed, and practical recommendations and solutions to promote "positive well-being" were sought. Eleven workshops were conducted; these focused on dental care, stress in young children, food services in day care, detecting developmental delays, check-ups for children, hyperactivity, child abuse, prevention of accidental injuries, day care and the ill child, controlling communicable diseases, and the influences of television-viewing habits. In this report, workshop summaries provide names of moderators and panelists, state workshop objectives, and list recommendations for day care practices. The report also provides a very brief summary of the keynote address, profiles of individuals receiving awards, a few remarks about the closing summary session, and notes identifying special contributors to the conference.
