Pediatric Nutrition Classes

Is your child a COPC pediatric patient? If so, our free classes can help you learn practical tips to improve your family's nutrition! Our Registered Dietitian Nutritionist facilitates each class and will give you the most up-to-date recommendations for your growing child. Children who attend will be engaged with activities and food samples to help expand their knowledge as well as their palate. Check out our pediatric nutrition page to see how you can get started!

Pediatric Support Centers

Our Support Center provides care to COPC families that’s exceptionally better than the traditional Emergency Room and Urgent Care experience, at a significantly lower cost. Scheduling an appointment (through your child’s COPC pediatrician) with our Pediatric Support Center allows your child to be seen by one of our outstanding pediatricians after typical office hours and on weekends.
