Ann McCurdy, CCHS Public Relations Coordinator, says “Over the last five years we’ve built a really solid educational series, Healthy U, that we host at Cass County Health System. We are now expanding the same model to reach young parents at a time and in a way that’s more convenient for them. We’ll provide free dinner and childcare so that the parents can eat, relax, learn a little, and come away with good information that helps them care for their children. It’s also a great opportunity for parents to meet and get to know a few of our physicians that they may not know yet.”

Healthy U & Baby, Too! is a three-part series geared to parents with young children, and it is being held in conjunction with the support of Nishna Valley Family YMCA and Ann W. Wickman Child Development Center. The next two sessions will be held on March 17 and April 21; details will be released at a later date.

All Healthy U & Baby, Too! events are free and open to the public. Parents do not have to have their child enrolled at the Ann W. Wickman Child Development Center to attend; childcare will be provided free of charge to any family attending. Dinner will also be provided free of charge to families, but a reservation is required.
