August is here, and parents across the country are helping children get ready to head back to school. The to-do list might include meeting the teacher, schedule pickup and back-to-school shopping. But it also should include a yearly health checkup. At this back-to-school appointment, your child's health care provider can check that immunizations are up to date, provide a routine physical examination, and discuss your child’s overall health and well-being.

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Summer Allen, a Mayo Clinic family medicine physician, will share helpful tips to get your kids ready to start the school year, including the importance of schedules, and developing healthy eating and sleeping habits.
