Keeping kids well. Keeping communities strong. Learn more in our Impact Report.
Rady Children’s wants you to be the best parent you can be, so we created the Center for Healthier Communities.
The Center for Healthier Communities is your community resource for keeping your children healthy and safe. By partnering with organizations throughout our region, we offer an array of innovative programs and services. Click here for all our community programs.
Our priorities are Injury Prevention, Oral Health, Maternal and Child Health, Nutrition and Healthy Lifestyles, and Youth Development.
Among the services and resources that are available to you:
- Car seat checkups. Sign up for a safety seat inspection at a location near you.
- The Rady Children’s Safety Store, a one-stop shop for approved safety gear and disaster preparedness supplies. Browse the Safety Store.
- Injury prevention fact sheets on childproofing, pool safety and more.
- Dental health information. Learn how to take care of your children’s teeth – and keep them smiling.
