Maryland Family Network has launched a new podcast for child care professionals. Each episode of Child Care Tips, focuses on health and safety topics or best practices for child care providers.

The first episode delves into epilepsy and seizures as they relate to young children and their caregivers. This fifteen minute conversation, between MFN's Registered Nurse Consultant Melanie Conway and Latonya Anderson, who is playing the part of a Child Care Provider, provides clear instructions on what to look for, what to do, and who to contact. Contact Patricia Ormiston, Nurse Consultant, Maryland Family Network for more information.
