VCU Health CMH to host program on the growth of children

Published 11:18 am Wednesday, January 6, 2016

What should I expect as my child grows? How much milk does my baby really need? What is a good meal and snack plan for my child? Why do my child’s legs hurt? When will my teen grow?

The answers to these questions can be answered by attending January’s C.O.R.E. (Community Out-Reach Education) Program at VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital to learn more about the growth of your child.

This free program will be on Tuesday, Jan. 19, at 7 p.m. in the VCU Health CMH Education Center Auditorium at 125 Buena Vista Circle in South Hill.

Dr. Rebecca Kirker will be the speaker for the program. Kirker specializes in pediatrics.

She is board certified by the American Academy of Pediatrics. She provides a full range of pediatric care for infants, children and teens at CMH Family Care Center, located at 420 Durant Street in South Hill.

Reservations are not required for this program; however, they are recommended. For more information or to register to attend, call (434) 774-2550 or visit
