AT OHSU DOERNBECHER CHILDREN’S HOSPITALa vital part of our mission is to share the knowledge gained here with families throughout our community. We are dedicated to bringing you the latest discoveries, treatments, and therapies to help your family stay healthy. 

In this issue of the Kids’ Health Annual, presented by Doernbecher and SagaCity Media, you’ll read advice on vitamins and supplements, vaccines, the importance of oral health, and more. We also provide ideas for entertaining kids staying home from school for the day—and how to help them sleep at night.

Raising a family is more hectic than ever. Work, school, and home responsibilities are increasing, as is the number of screens competing for your (and your kids’) attention. Sometimes it all may seem overwhelming. At Doernbecher, we’re here to guide you: In addition to pediatric specialty care, our programs, community events, and the information on our blog at Doernbecher.com are all ways you can learn more and keep your family well. You only want the best for your family. At Doernbecher, so do we: Every child deserves the best.
