as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. ask about humira, the #1 prescribed biologic by dermatologists.

welcome back to the morning blend. accidents are the leading cause of death and injury in kids 18 and younger. research shows that education and awareness helps. today a program that provides free safety resources to kids and families with an emphasis on preventing accidents. we're here with bridget clementi from children's hospital of wisconsin to talk about the partnership they have with the kohl's cares grow safe and healthy program. great to see you. >> good morning. >> we have great examples here on the table. with community health. there is a lot you are doing related to this and a lot that is free to our community as well. >> most people know children's hospital for the amazing clinical care we provide and we will still continue to do that and have dedication to that. but a lot of people don't realize we spend a lot of effort and energy and have a lot of programs and services to keep kids out of the hospital to make sure they are well, safe and healthy. kohl's cares grow safe and
reminders. the kids need to be engaged. we provide some free safety resources that make a lot of sense. >> fantastic. one example of the initialtives that you have going on related to wellness is the kohl's cares grow safe and healthy program. you also have a website that goes with this right? >> absolutely. it's geared for kids 6 to 14. a lot of people think of safety for the really young kids the dd while we have information on that don't forget about safety for older kids. >> that's what they are out and about and sometimes by themselves. >> a lot of peer pressure. >> so there is resources information about teens and kids how to keep them safe in the house, on the go while they are on the road all different types of things. >> it's wonderful it's just a click away too. what about the kohl's cares grow safe and healthy the program as it relates to other things like
everybody loves spriggy. >> awesome little character. self-this little blue guy sitting on the table with us he gets into a bunch of trouble. the kids can really interact with the game. we really tried and it's not to make safety that boring lecture we all tend to give to our kids, but really engage them in that learning in a way they can be advocates for their own safety as well as help us remember those important things. >> i love this spriggy goes to school. the new arm of your program. you also have a mobile tour where you make stops in different >> not so much on these cold winter days i got to tell you you're not going to find us out there. in the summer and in the fall and spring, we're out stop by and engage with the mobile tour. the mobile event and we always have a great time. >> talk about some of the things that you brought because they demonstrate important things not just in terms of ideas about gifts that help keep kids safe and well, but also dangers of things out there. >> during the holidays we're always going to individuals
usually be having young kids in the home. so to keep in mind the importance of who is coming to visit, how do you create a safe environment for that family to have a safe experience and you mentioned batteries. batteries can be found all over the home. video game remotes, if the kids are playing with the younger kids and they want to put that remote in their mouth which is not very common, beware those batteries can come out. duct tape or any tape on top of those is a simple idea. cards lihe sitting on the desk great fun, a lot of music and animation in the cards, but there is batteries in there and when that paper gets wet those batteries can easily come out and be swallowed by a young child. >> i didn't even think about that. a lot of people see these cards. >> i mean they are fun. ? ? [ music ] ? ? >> not quite as good as the music we were hearing, but this poses a danger it has to do with the battery coming out.
around the house that light up and have batteries those are all at risk especially for young children putting that in their mouth and will ingest that battery. >> that's a great reminder i didn't think about it either. what about some of the things on the table. i don't know if people think of helmets as a gift, but there are some great helmets out there. >> whether you are thinking about giving any kind of a gift that requires any kind of protective gear, so a snow board, skis, roller blades all of those great fun things make sure you're giving the protection equipment as well. helmets, pads, wrist guards those types of things. even for the older kids we talked about older kids i know they are resistant. my kids as well, but, those helmets and pads are super critical to keeping them safe and healthy. >> uh-huh. you brought examples of some of my favorite books paddington bear, the madeline book and the dolls. this helps support your program
price, $5. >> and there is nothing that couldn't be safer than a book. a book is a great opportunity and the plush that kohl's sells and the books really do help to fund our program and other programs across the community. great gifts and great support for us. >> people can find them at kohl's. there are other great examples too. beware of batteries we talked about kids can put them in their mouth. >> only covered a few so make sure to download the app visit the website there is a lot o keep safe over the holidays. >> that's wonderful. i like your suggestion to keep in mind who is visiting you and make it a safe place for the people that you love who are going to be with you for the holidays. so kohl's safe and healthy.com, is the website to visit for all of these wonderful free resources as well as lists of things can you find to buy and things to be careful of too. great to see you happy holidays. >> have a happy and safe holiday. thank you you too. still ahead another song
nyemeck back from herzing university along with physical therapist dr. kim dechant. >> it was only once i got older that i had to start thinking about falling. i used to think about why are old people so afraid of falling. it's like because you don't recover as quickly and often those injuries can be really, affect your quality of life. >> so let's talk about how people can prevent the kind of falls that o >> it's interesting you bring up fear. fear of falling is a really big indicater for possible falls. so if you are talking to someone about especially someone who is elderly and they are like i'm afraid of falling it is predictive of falls even if they don't have any weakens. weakens. >> is it because it makes us tense? >> yes the anxious and stiffening posture. it's really important to talk to loved ones and say how are you
is some things they can do to prevent falls. one life hack is now they make little ends for the canes so somebody made little ice picks they can put on the end of the canse. >> they make a great weapon. [laughter] >> you don't want to do that. >> the lines can be real long at wal-mart this time of the year. [laughter] >> so that's great. of course,in everything, and, make sure you have a support system and then, i have to stick up for physical therapy, making sure that you continue to strengthen your legs and stay active because we tend to stay inside and not move around as much in the winter. >> as a physical therapist what types of injuries do you tend to see in the winter months? >> we'll see just bumps and bruises, but ankle sprains, we'll see unfortunately, the people fall they could break a
things and so we want to make sure we prevent those. and really it's coming together and the support system and making sure that the driveway is shoveled that walkways are clear, that you have somebody going with you to places if you need that extra support. >> uh-huh. >> i like that. >> what are the students learning in physical therapy program right now? >> so at our program, the physical therapist assistant program they are just getting down with their technical courses going on clinicals and we're learning about treating amputees, we're treating the dizziness and falls and so, they are kind of coming to the end of their program and graduating in april. so it's exciting. >> absolutely. >> when does the program start for somebody interested in physical therapy, when does the program start for herzing? >> we have a lot starts coming up. depending on transfer credit they could start in january, february, march, any of the upcoming months we just want to evaluate first. >> how long is the program for
someone has no transfer credits it is 20 months. >> quick. >> yeah. >> i i'm thinking in baby terms. people who have a child know what that means. a little less than two years. a [laughter] >> exactly. >> 13 months. [laughter] >> 13 and a halfth >> and there is still room in the program then? >> absolutely. >> and in terms of credits transferring, how does that process work? i think for a lot of students ystudentsfeel like you are aheae game if you can get some of note credits to transfer. >> you would just want to have your transcript sent or bring along some unofficials and see what is going to transfer. we want to get you the most transfer credits possible for what you have already done so it will save you time and money.
the program? >> in physical therapy i love working with people. helping them and with pediatrics all the way to geriatrics. it's really rewarding i love working with the students. >> i think physical therapy is a very empowering program because it is kind of helping yourself heal. right now people can have their enrollment fee waived if you call for a campus visit. there are two numbers for the brookfield campus.
