In Golisano Children’s Hospital’s newest effort to keep the children of Southwest Florida out of the hospital, healthy and happy, they are putting advice and tips from expert physicians and healthcare providers in the hands of parents and caregivers without the need to step foot inside a doctor’s office.
This July, Kids First magazine will hit stands as a free resource in the region and Southwest Florida’s only publication solely dedicated to sharing expert-sourced pediatric health and wellness information. The publication will offer the latest in health-related topics such as seasonal tips, mind and body wellness, local healthcare resources, nutrition, active lifestyles, safety and risk awareness, as well as inspirational stories. Readers will also have the latest guide in available care and treatments in the area and close to home. As a biannual resource, the July issue will focus on timely issues going into the new school year, including fall sports, sleep habits, safety and more.
The mission of the magazine is to help ensure children are the healthiest they can be, thus keeping hospital admissions down and experiencing better outcomes if hospitalization is ever necessary. Kids First is made possible in partnership with TOTI Media, longtime leader in award-winning high-quality magazines in Southwest Florida, and the support of community advertisers and businesses that support the mission.
“We have many choices of causes that we can support, and healthy kids will lead to a healthy future. Therefore, I applaud and support the Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida for its efforts to bring awareness to our communities,” says Daniela J. Jaeger, group publisher of TOTI Media.
“Kids First will be a valuable resource bringing our compassionate and dedicated staff of medical experts to the parents and those who care for them on a daily basis,” said Armando Llechu, the hospital’s chief administrative officer. “We feel this proactive approach is our responsibility to the community in which we live and serve, and aim to address topics and questions that are relevant here and now.”
