With the start of a new school year, school bus safety is something parents should discuss with their children, says the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Public Health.
Summer is almost upon us, and with it comes warmer weather, outdoor fun, and more freedom for our children to move and be healthy. As the season approaches, it helps to be reminded of ways to keep our kids safe in the summer months.

Summer is just around the corner, which means parties, vacations and holidays. With these fun, relaxing events, it’s not uncommon to unwind and celebrate with a drink in hand. Moderation is key in most things, but is especially important when it comes to consuming alcoholic beverages.
