One day in fact, I'd love to have a giant birthday party for all of those children whose mothers had given them possession of their journals, just to see all of those lucky recipients, and feel that in some small way I contributed to their good health. What a party that would be!
Fountain Valley, CA (PRWEB) January 21, 2009
Pocket Reference Journals, Inc., a medical publisher of pocket -sized health journals has just released its latest edition of the "All About Me" Children's Health Journal.
The Journal has now entered into its 23rd year, and is a concise recordkeeping tool that is yet informative, and organizational in its ability to help track a baby's progress, both medically, and developmentally. It was written by seven pediatric specialists including an emergency room physician, pediatrician,ear, nose, and throat specialist, certified lactation educator, and a dentist. It contains CDC growth charts, the recommended immunization schedules, developmental statistics, prenatal history, and tests, family medical history pages, identifying marks and fingerprint pages, emergency authorization forms, dietary guidelines, and more. It's handy pocket -size makes it an idea carry-on in diaper bags, to the doctor for updates, or given to the babysitter, in case of an emergency.
The journal has successfully been used by hospitals, county health departments, hmo's, pharmaceutical companies and many other different types of companies for use as a promotional tool that has a lifetime of service. It's primarily been the best new mother baby gift found in the many hospital gift bags that get distributed around the United States.
The journal can be purchased online at http://www.pocketreferencejournals.com. The retail price is $5.95.
Its publisher Bonnie L. Schachter says "it's a small price to pay for such a well-thought out informative recordkeeping device, and infant developmental journal that will be a keepsake for many years to come, for both mother and child". Bonnie adds, "One day in fact, I'd love to have a giant birthday party for all of those children whose mothers had given them possession of their journals, just to see all of those lucky recipients, and feel that in some small way I contributed to their good health. What a party that would be!"
Other journals include the Full Life Women's Health Journal, Personal Health Journal, the My Pregnancy Journal, My Smart Heart, My Pocket Doctor, A Diabetes Reference Guide, the My Life Journal, the Step On It! Food & Walking Journal, and the widely popular Pet Passport. Several of these publications also come in Spanish. The majority of these journals have been widely used in patient education programs, health fairs, screenings, diabetes education, employee wellness and safety programs, retirement programs, as web site incentives, in support groups, walking clubs, nutrition, and weight loss programs, and for cardiac rehab. The pet world on the other hand has embraced the passport for animal adoptions, pet store promotions, airlines with pet friendly flying, pet amenable hotels, groomers, and doggie day care.
Last year Pocket Reference Journals also added a CD Audio book on Diabetes to keep pace with the blind, illiterate, and low-visions populations need for information as a follow up to their Braille version. "The world is a multi-media opportunity and we've branched out from being in their pocket to being in their ears, what's next? Stay tuned!" says Bonnie Schachter.
