Point Edward, ON – Lambton Public Health (LPH) is continuing to expand its Ask a Public Health Nurse drop-in offerings throughout the county, with the re-opening of LPH’s main office as a drop-in site, giving parents and caregivers a chance to connect with a public health nurse and enhance their child’s growth.
The Ask a Public Health Nurse drop-in program is available at LPH’s Point Edward office as well as eight EarlyON locations across Lambton County and is open to parents and caregivers with children ranging from birth to school-age. Public Health Nurses (PHN) are available to answer questions regarding breastfeeding supports and infant nutrition, newborn care, parenting, and growth and development.
“Ask a Public Health Nurse gives parents and caregivers the chance to ask important questions about their child’s growth and development, but it also offers important opportunities for socialization that can have long term benefits for both parents and child,” said Clinical and Family Services Supervisor, Jen Beaubien. “We’re thrilled to be able to resume offering the drop-in program throughout the county, giving parents a chance to access important services in their communities.”
A full list of drop-in locations, dates, and times are available by visiting LambtonPublicHealth.ca.
