Charlotte Cowan MD Honored by Obama Administration for Innovative 'Doctor Hippo' Series of Children's Books
Date:7/1/2009

The Parent Guide answers common questions such as: "How can I help my child to feel better at home?" "When should I call the doctor?" and "When may my child go back to school?" Inherently entertaining and comforting, Dr. Cowan's picture books educate both parent and child through repeated readings thereby empowering families to stay at home, to give their children excellent care, and to call appropriately for medical advice or visits.

"I am greatly honored to be recognized by the Obama Administration's Office of Social Innovation. I hope that today's recognition accelerates my goal of using children's stories, the Dr. Hippo Series, to get health education out of the pediatric office and into the hands of American families, thereby increasing the accessibility and affordability of excellent health care across America," said Charlotte Cowan, M.D.

The illnesses Dr. Cowan has chosen for her first series of stories are those that affect and infect children everywhere. Facts about these illnesses--responsible for the vast majority of pediatric sick visits nationally--are below. (Their references are at Dr. Cowan's website: www.drhippo.com .)

  • American children have 6-10 colds each year. These cause over 22 million lost days of school annually. Antibiotics are prescribed for 47% of upper respiratory infections -- i.e. the common cold, despite their lack of effectiveness treating cold-related viral infections.
  • Fever is the most common complaint of children seen in the Pediatric Emergency Department.
