We are fortunate to have DanversCARES in town, an organization dedicated to keeping youth and families healthy. DanversCARES encourages you to speak with your child’s pediatrician or doctor about all of your child’s medications, and to speak with your children about the importance of using medication only as prescribed and only to treat specific and diagnosed medical conditions. Visit the DanversCARES website, DanversCARES.org, for more information and resources on this and other related topics.
