Hannibal Parents as Teachers

Dear PAT Families,

We hope this newsletter finds you doing well and enjoying the start of February! We are looking forward to partnering with you this month. Hannibal PAT is offering in person, virtual, and telecommunication visits. We look forward to visiting with your family in whichever format meets your needs best!

February is American Heart Month and Children's Dental Health Month. Team PAT and we will be focusing on dental and heart health on our visits as well as bringing toothbrushes and paste from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.

We are wishing your family the best this February and cannot wait to visit with you!
