CPMG creates YouTube channel to inform parents who are anywhere there’s an Internet connection.
Online PR News – 02-July-2010 – – San Diego, CA Children’s Physician Medical Group (CPMG) of San Diego is making it easier than ever for parents everywhere to receive important information regarding their children’s health.
By taking advantage of the various advances made in online social media, CPMG has created their own channel on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/user/CPMGSanDiego) that features hours of video created by CPMG specifically designed to give parents advice on how to keep their young, teen and adolescent kids safe, fit and healthy.
Topics currently covered by informational videos that parents might find helpful include car seat safety, stomach flu, herbal medicine and kids, kindergarten readiness adn backpack safety. The channel also provides videos for parents seeking more information on topics they may have heard quite a bit of gossip and rumors about, including MRSA, scoliosis, and Neo-Melubrina. Parents can be sure that they are getting relevant and accurate information because the videos are actually news agency interviews of CPMG pediatric physicians and pediatric specialists.
This YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/user/CPMGSanDiego) channel is an exceptional resource for busy parents who may not have the time to catch their local news broadcast but still want the information that they can use to keep their kids healthy.
YouTube is a video sharing social network that requires no membership to view CPMG’s videos. A free membership is available that offers the opportunity to subscribe to CPMG’s channel and receive alerts every time a new video is posted, keeping the parent as up to date as possible on children’s health-related issues.
CPMG’s YouTube channel isn’t just for parents; it’s for any adult that comes in contact with children on a regular basis, like teachers, counselors, and family members. Even adolescents and teenagers will find information on the site that is relevant to them, like the video entitled “Texting While Moving”, that explains why sending text messages while doing something as simple as walking down the sidewalk can be just as dangerous as sending text messages while driving a car.
Most parents already make use of sites like YouTube on a daily basis as a source of entertainment, but there is no reason why a parent can’t take a few moments out of their day to view something that could increase their child’s quality of life, teach them something they may not have known, or remind them of something they might have forgotten.
Parents are not only encouraged to visit CPMG’s YouTube channel on a regular basis, they are also encouraged to spread the word about the channel so that other parents and adults can benefit from the vast amount of free information that CPMG is giving away.
