Check out our Spring and Summer Photo Contest for your chance to win a $100 gift card!

 








As of May 5, 2018, we're seeing the following illnesses.

 

As many of you are aware, measles is in our county.

Illnesses-Going-Around.pngBe sure your kids are up to date on vaccines.

See Dr. Stuppy's Measles Outbreaks: What can you do to protect your family? for more information.

A list of known locations of possible exposure will be updated on a site called Prepare Metro KC as applicable.

If you think your family was at one of these locations, call the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment at 913-477-8343 or the KDHE Epidemiology hotline at 877-427-7317.

At this time, the health department is NOT recommending giving children the MMR vaccine early. We will let you know if that changes. 

If your child has symptoms of any illness, see our Illnesses page for treatment tips or the specific page to which each illness or condition is hyperlinked. If you're not sure how quickly you need to have your child seen, see our Symptom Decision Chart.

We all do it sometimes. We grab a snack and plop down on the couch to watch a movie. Before we know it the whole thing is gone. We only meant to eat some of it, but downed it in one sitting. That is distracted eating at it's finest. It exemplifies the problem of eating without intention. Not because of hunger. Not even healthy foods typically. Just eating because it's there.April 21, 2018 Distracted Eating
