SEPTEMBER 3 and again on OCTOBER 29, Ms. Anna Carpenter from the Greene County Health Department will be at the market to share information or provide resources to anyone that would like to stop by her booth.
Children’s Health Month reminds us of the importance of protecting our children’s health from environmental hazards in places where they live, play, and learn. From their earliest stages of development through puberty, children are vulnerable to exposure to environmental contaminants, such as lead. They are particularly vulnerable because their bodies are small and still developing, so they ingest and absorb more chemicals.
During Let's Talk Month, young people and parents are encouraged to communicate with one another about sexuality — including relationships, bodies and body image, reproduction, gender and sexual orientation, sexual behavior, and preventing pregnancy and STDs.
