WW_ChildrensHealth_SquareJoin MomsRising, Speak Now for Kids, C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital National Poll on Children’s Health, Mental Health America, Community Catalyst and First Focus for this week’s Wellness Wednesday Tweet chat on the state of children’s health in America.

A recent  C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital National Poll on Children’s Health revealed that more than half of adults believe children today are more stressed, experience less quality family time and have worse mental and emotional health than children in past generations.

“We have seen major advances in medicine and public health over the last century that have greatly reduced children’s illness and death. On the other hand, conditions like childhood obesity, asthma and behavior problems have become more common,” said Matthew M. Davis, M.D., M.A.P.P., director of the poll and professor of pediatrics and internal medicine at the University of Michigan’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.

Join First Focus from 2 to 3 p.m. ET on Twitter this Wednesday using the hashtag #WellnessWed to talk about the national sate of children’s health.
