    Mayo Clinic Radio: Preparing kids for back to school

kids walking into school with backpacksAs summer nears its end, parents across the country are helping children get ready to head back to school. Preparing for a new school year usually involves shopping for school supplies and meeting the teacher, but you also should consider including a visit to a health care provider in your back-to-school prep. Depending on the age of your children, an appointment with your health care provider could include immunizations, a sports physical or just a good time to check in on your child’s overall health and well-being.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Elizabeth Cozine, a family medicine physician at Mayo Clinic, will share helpful tips for getting kids ready to head back into the classroom. Also on the program, Dr. Eric Moore, an otolaryngologist and head and neck surgeon at Mayo Clinic, will discuss throat cancers caused by HPV. And Dr. Jon Ebbert, an addiction specialist at Mayo Clinic, will explain how medical marijuana is used to treat pain and disease symptoms.
