This one-page resource asks and answers fundamental questions about the daily health check, including:
- What is it?
- Why do it?
- Who does it?
- When to do it?
- How is it done? – with specifics about what providers should look, listen, feel, and smell for
There is also a section about symptoms that may indicate a child is ill.
The Daily Health Check is available in English and Spanish.
