When it’s time for school, it’s good to have a partner who cares about your student’s health and wellness as much as you do. Your partners at Lehigh Valley Reilly Children’s Hospital and Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) have developed a wide range of information and resources to help your child start the school year healthy and have a great year learning and thriving.

You’ve come to the right place for information about:

  • The coronavirus (COVID-19) and how you can help protect your child and family
  • Well-child visits, which remain critical, pandemic or not
  • Other child health questions

Lehigh Valley Reilly Children’s Hospital has gathered a wealth of information just for you. It was developed by our caring team of pediatricians and other health care specialists, including sports medicine experts from LVHN. We've even created some fun videos for kids with tips just for them.
