Innovationedge has been working with Ann Liebeskind, a Fox Cities physician in northeast Wisconsin specializing in the Lipids (Cholesterol Management) field. Through Ann, we learned that the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, and the American Academy of Pediatrics updated their guidelines and recommended screening all kids for cholesterol problems.
The guidelines are a step in the right direction but Ann saw the need for more cholesterol education that was simplified, engaging and appealing to kids and families.
The new pediatric guidelines, along with the lack of family-friendly materials, inspired Ann to start Homework For Health, a kid and family-friendly website. To learn more about Homework For Health, go to the website at homeworkforhealth.com We encourage you to visit the site and provide feedback by completing a short survey.
