What Was Measured?

Why Is It Important?

The best HMOs work to prevent childhood diseases. Doctors make sure that children get the shots they need. Children’s weight is regularly checked as part of healthy eating and nutrition care. And, when a child or adolescent is ill, doctors prescribe the right medications and check-up on children who are on long-term prescriptions.
