USPS issues new stamp promoting Child Health

September 8th, 2005

In a move to raise awareness of critical child care issues, the Postal Service dedicated the "Child Health" commemorative postage stamp today at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

The 37-cent social awareness stamp was designed to remind Americans that regular medical checks, proper use of car seats, a balanced diet and regular exercise are key to ensuring a healthy child's future.

The stamp, available nationwide today, comes at an appropriate time as next month has been designated as Child Health Month by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the year 2005 is designated "The Year of the Healthy Child" by the Surgeon General.
