Adolescent Health, or Youth Health: is the range of approaches to preventing, detecting, or treating young people's health and well-being. The term adolescent and young people are often used interchangeably, as are the terms Adolescent Health and Youth Health.

Pediatrics: is the branch of medicine that involves the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents. One of the many things you need to do to prepare for your little ones' arrival is to choose a doctor to oversee their health care. A pediatrician is a medical doctor who manages the physical, behavioral, and mental care for children from birth until age 18. A pediatrician is trained to diagnose and treat a broad range of childhood illnesses, from minor health problems to serious diseases.

What Does Your Pediatrician Do?

Your pediatrician will see your child many times from birth to age 2 and annually from age 2 to age 5 for "well-child visits." After age 5, your pediatrician will likely see your child every year for annual checkups. Your pediatrician is also the first person to call whenever your child is sick. In caring for your child, a pediatrician will assess the following:

Preventive Medicine and Immunizations

Preventive Medicine and Immunizations

Your child gets scheduled immunizations to prevent illness. You also can ask your pediatrician about nutrition and safety in the home and at school.
