Health Screening for Children
The Importance of Health Screening for Children
The early years of a child’s life are very important for his or her development and health.
As early detection leads to more effective treatment, health screenings for children are crucial. Through checkups, potential health problems can be identified and managed before they become health problems that children carries into adulthood.
