About KidsHealth

Welcome to KidsHealth!

Who We Are

Nemours is a nonprofit children's health system. Neil Izenberg, MD, a physician at Nemours, founded KidsHealth.org in 1995. Our goal is to help parents, kids, and teens take charge of their health.

What We Do

We aim to give families the tools and confidence to make the best health choices.

Here's what you'll find on KidsHealth.org:

  • Doctor-reviewed advice on hundreds of physical, emotional, and behavioral topics — from before birth through the teen years.
  • Separate sections for parents, kids, and teens, each created with your questions in mind.
  • Easy-to-follow articles, slideshows, videos, and health tools designed to help families learn, grow, and be their best.
  • Free lesson plans and programs for teachers and early childhood educators.

Help Us Spread the Message of Good Health for All Kids

We partner with other groups that share our mission to help kids grow up healthy. Contact our Partnership Group to learn more.
