Parenting U

Raising children to be safe and healthy is a big job, and Children’s Hospital & Medical Center is here to provide a helping hand. Our Parenting U program connects you with experts on hot topics in pediatric healthcare.

From preparing for a new baby to communicating with your teenager, we offer new topics throughout the year. In addition to hearing from an expert in the medical field, each session will wrap up with an opportunity for you to ask questions.

Classes are currently available in three formats: onsite seminars at Children’s, webinars, and onsite seminars at the Baby Love Baby Fair at Baxter Arena.
