Time for Kids — A Partnership Between Dean Clinic, St. Mary's and WISC-TV3

Bite size changes for a healthier year


Heart Health - Love is in the air this month as children exchange valentines and share heart-shaped candy with friends. Now is a great time to help them remember the importance of keeping their own hearts strong.

February 7 - 13

Laugh a little!
Research shows that laughter really is great medicine. From decreasing stress hormones and artery inflammation to increasing "good" cholesterol levels, laughing does more than just make you feel good. This week, share a little laughter and joy by telling a good joke or watching a funny movie together.

Dean Clinic and St. Mary's Hospital are teaming up with our Time for Kids partner WISC-TV3 to focus on a year-long campaign to help families discover their recipe for health. By making small health changes over the year, we can make a lasting impact on our health together.

Through "Time for Kids: Recipe for Health" we will provide families and community members with easy "ingredients" that work together to create a lasting "recipe for health". From getting better sleep to eating healthier and getting more exercise, there are small, achievable changes you can make in your everyday routine to create lifelong healthy habits.

Throughout the year, watch for informative stories, weekly tips and events that’ll help you create your family's ideal recipe for health.

Join Dean Clinic, St. Mary's Hospital and WISC-TV3 as we issue an important call to action encouraging families to make small, healthy lifestyle changes! Together, we can make a difference.
