Welcome to a Health Resource Guide especially for parents!
Here is information about your child's physical, mental, and dental health.
In this Guide there is also information about health insurance, talking with your child's doctor, selecting a doctor for your child, as well as other health-related topics.
Since this resource guide is a publication of Healthnet: Connecticut Consumer Information Network, a program of the Lyman Maynard Stowe Library, UConn Health, it includes Connecticut as well as national resources when they are available.
Books listed may be available at your public library. If your library does not own a book you would like to read, the library may be able to borrow a copy for your use. In addition, Connecticut residents may borrow books directly from other public libraries within the state with their own town library card.
The Guide includes Internet websites as well as print resources. Although advertisements may appear on some websites in the Guide, the University of Connecticut Health Center Library makes no recommendations for these products or services nor endorses them.
