What are the biggest health risks facing children and adolescents today? The C.S. Mott Children Hospital of the University of Michigan Health System has some answers.
For nine years, the hospital has conducted an annual survey of adults about what they think are the “big problems” in children’s health.
It’s hard to argue with the poll results: obesity, bullying, and drug abuse are the top three in the 2015 poll (a repeat of the top three from last year), with child abuse and neglect, smoking and tobacco use, and school violence also included in the top ten.
