The Wellness Roundup With Dr. Jill

Should Kids Go Back to School? Dr. Jill Garripoli Pedalino Featured on The ModernMom Podcast

There are a lot of things to consider regarding children eventually going back to school whether it’s in-person, virtual, or hybrid format. Kudos to Winnie Sun and ModernMom for providing their viewers with an informative, polite, and judgment-free discussion with a pediatrician (Dr. Jill) and a teacher (Hedreich Nichols).

Everyone agreed that there are no perfect solutions to the current situation, but there are several safety and lifestyle measures that can put in place to minimize your child’s everyday risk from inevitable challenges that our country faces now and will inevitably face in some other form in the future.

Hedreich mentioned something that most of us don’t consider. From a learning perspective, she’s more concerned about the disruption in a child’s daily routine that might occur with a hybrid schedule for her son so she’s opting for a 100% virtual format when school reopens.

Dr. Jill also mentioned something that most of us don’t consider. From a long-term health perspective, she’s more concerned about the current health habits and lifestyles of Americans which are significantly decreasing the effectiveness of their immune systems and their ability to fight this virus and many other preventable diseases like obesity, which affects 20% of our children and 70% of our adults.

Thank you ModernMom for inviting Dr. Jill to participate and featuring her on your podcast! We wish all of your viewers continued health and happiness.
