Dr. Grimes explains how to keep your child healthy and safe while they're off at college.
Summer vacation may have already begun, but before you know it, it’ll be time for the kids to head back to school. And for those heading to college for the first time, there’s more to think about than just registering for class and buying books. Dr. Jill Grimes is the author of The Ultimate College Student Health Handbook. She joined us on QC Morning to share advice on what other things students and parents should be thinking about before heading off to school. Dr. Grimes says there is so much to consider but COVID has taken that to a whole new level. She says its important to put together a first aid kit. Be sure to order a thermometer now because there’s a back order on those. She also says another thing to think about is your health insurance card.
