Dozens of local parents of young children at the Sowing Seed School recently learned valuable health information during a special seminar presented by Hackensack Meridian Health Palisades Medical Center.

Medical professionals discussed several topics that effect children, including vaccinations, concussion and head injury prevention, developmental milestones, and treating fever.
