Postal Service promotes child health with new stamp

August 20th, 2005

The U.S. Postal Service continues its tradition of drawing attention to important social awareness issues with this stamp promoting children's health.

Art director Carl T. Herrman and stamp artist Craig Frazier show a silhouette of a physician placing a stethoscope on a child's chest. The selvage text is as follows: "Balanced Diet and Exercise, Regular Medical Checkups, Car Seats Each Time and Caring for Our Future."

The 37-cent Child Health postage stamp will be available nationwide September 7.
