While back-to-school shopping, Liberty Hospital experts say allowing students to choose clean clothes that make them feel confident and then laying out clean clothes the night before school are simple ways to create a good start of the school year.

With the first day of school around the corner, parents and kids are busy preparing for the new year. Choosing a new lunch box and school supplies are essential, but parents also shouldn’t forget about their kids’ health.

“When kids feel anxious, especially during a transition like back to school, being prepared is the key,” said Melanie Palma, APRN, clinical nurse practitioner at Liberty Hospital Primary Care Shoal Creek. “It’s best not to delay talking about school or getting kids back into a routine, but get a head start in the weeks leading up to the first day.”
