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.
