Children’s Wellness

Children's Wellness at Wood County Hospital

Children's wellness is a growing concern in the United States. Today, our children face many serious health issues. These issues include poor nutrition, inactive lifestyles, increasing stress levels with little knowledge of how to handle it, and a general lack of understanding of the importance of hand-washing and general good hygiene. 

Wellness Works is dedicated to helping children learn to make healthy lifestyle choices. Through interactive presentations, activities and health fairs, we offer children the opportunity to learn essential skills for staying healthy.
