About the Author:

Charlotte Hendricks Dr. Charlotte M. Hendricks, president and founder of www.childhealthonline.org, has promoted health education for young children, parents, and teachers for over thirty years. Her career in early childhood health education began in 1980 in a health department, where she pioneered research and curriculum development in preschool health education. Her work has continued with experience in higher education, Head Start, and national research projects. Recognized as a leader in her field, Charlotte's work is based on the principle that adults are responsible for children's health and safety; however, young children need to explore their work and begin to develop decision-making skills and healthy habits to promote lifelong health. She provides training sessions for Head Start and early childcare programs, presents at state and national conferences, is editor of a peer-reviewed magazine, and has published numerous curricula and resource materials, including HIP on Health Parent Information and resources for state and national organizations. Her published works, including the Growing, Growing Strong series and Redleaf Quick Guide to Medical Emergencies in Early Childhood Settings, exemplify her ability to present essential information in an easy-to-follow format.
