Improving health and safety

Shriners Hospitals for Children and the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) are working together to improve the health and safety of all children.

Through educational materials, events and professional training, Shriners Hospitals and NASN want to ensure students have the prevention and safety information they need to reduce the risk of childhood injuries.

Backpack basics

Used correctly, backpacks can be a good way to carry all the books, supplies and personal items needed for a typical school day.

However, backpacks that are too heavy or carried incorrectly can injure muscles or joints and contribute to back pain and other problems.
