With the new school and college year only days away, many parents will be worrying about the health of their children, and top of the health worries may be the disease Meningitis, which seems to particularly strike at young college students.

Watch this film (and more importantly, get your new student to watch it) and learn about the signs and symptoms for which you should watch.

Of course, meningitis is not the only disease of childhood, which is why we have a link to a book about general family health under the "More info" option. If you don't have such a book or if yours is out of date, I do urge you to buy one without delay.
