The Niagara County Department of Health, in partnership with P3 Center for Teens, Moms and Kids and the Healthy Moms Healthy Babies Coalition, are excited to share our “Fresh Air Friday” program. From July 5 until Aug. 30, we will be at various parks around Niagara County every Friday from 1-3 p.m. 

Each week will feature a different theme with free, family-friendly activities, snacks and prizes. Community partners will be onsite with resources and information for families, including childhood development, childhood immunizations, lead prevention, child safety and much more. 

Director of Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs Janice Jenosheck said, “There are so many benefits to playing and being outside, in a world where we all spend a lot of time in front of screens. Knowing that we also have the opportunity to share important developmental and health information with our residents makes these events even more unique and exciting.”

Director of Perinatal and Infant Community Health at P3 Center Eileen Kineke said, “Play is an essential tool for learning. ‘Fresh Air Fridays’ will provide opportunities for play by bringing families together in public outdoor spaces throughout the summer.”

Come join us this summer for fresh air and sunshine, as well as health information, vaccinations, and more!
