Over the decades, school nurses, athletic trainers and coaches have had to expand their technical and educational skills to handle new and increasingly complicated health issues facing children today.
Some of these conditions include: diabetes, child obesity, sleep disorders and ADHD (Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). The Nurses Education Series offers training from Cooper physicians to provide useful information and resources to this core group of community care givers.
Over 75 local school health care providers will enhance their skills learning from the experts at Cooper University Hospital and the Children’s Regional Hospital at Cooper.
