How it works:

  • We organize your child’s complete health record including lab results, visits to specialists and hospital stays so nothing is overlooked.
  • You have access to you child’s complete health record online through MyChart. Ask your doctor how to sign up.

  • The Zing! team is lead by a Pediatrician and a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner. Other members of the team may include a registered dietitian, physical therapist, behavioral health specialist and other professionals. Each of these specialists will help you & your child set realistic, achievable goals.
  • You will have regular meetings with your child’s provider to talk about the program and see how your child is doing. We offer a variety of fun activities like cooking classes, group exercises and field trips!
  • Zing! providers teach how the “5-2-1-0″ message makes it easy to make healthy choices.
