New Parent Support Program
The New Parent Support Program offers information, support and guidance for new or expecting parents with children under age 3. With a team of registered nurses, the NPSP provides assistance in the areas of pregnancy labor and delivery, child care and safety. The programs gives parents the opportunity to express concerns and ask questions about their infants and young children. Families learn new skills while improving the old ones with resources the program teaches them. NPSP nurses work with parents to arrange home and office visits at times that work for families. Home visits give parents a chance to talk with a professional about their pregnancy and parenting issues in the comfort of their own homes. DoD ID card holders are eligible to be a part of the program.
School and Sports physicals for children are performed by their primary care manager. The high demand period is July and August because of the new school year, fall sports team tryouts, and people relocating to the area who require school physical exams. Please try to schedule your child’s physical early. Availability is limited the longer you wait. If your child has already had a physical in the last year, simply drop off the required forms for the PCM to complete. An annual physical is good for 365 days. Please note, the Clinic normally holds a “school and sports physical day” each summer to help with the high demand for physicals. Check with the Pediatric Clinic for the time and date of this event.
