Kids' health from a healthy pregnancy and preventing premature birth through the scrapes and bumps, childhood diseases and beyond is the topic of today's Deseret News/Intermountain Healthcare Hotline. From 10 a.m. to noon, Dr. Peter Lindgren, a pediatrician, and Tracy Karp, neonatal nurse practitioner, will take phoned-in questions. From the Salt Lake area, call 236-6061. Elsewhere, the toll-free number is 1-800-925-8177, only operational during hotline hours.
The hotline also is going online. You can submit your questions by e-mail to [email protected]. Deadline for e-mailed questions is today at 5 p.m. Depending on volume, their answers to some or all of them will be posted online Thursday at noon at www.deseretnews.com.
