About last night…My little one in concert with @IAMJHUD for the #AAP2020 NCE opener. Amazing. Thanks for inspiring her to sing like never before! #drcandicemd #kidshappyhealthy
As a pediatrician who has taken care of children who were separated at the border, this one hits home. Thank you @jacobsoboroff @juliemlinton for this powerful + poignant reminder of the important role pediatricians play to advocate for kids and against harmful policies. #AAP2020
Learning so much at the @AAPexperience about the issues facing our children. From racism and over-policing to obesity and vaping, we are covering it all! Feeling recharged as a warrior for kids’ well-being! #aap2020 #advocatefortheadorable #votekids
Pathways to Pediatrics on @PedsOnCall is still inspiring me. Got caught up listening to @PerriKlass – her love of toddlers and reading spoke to me. I’ve had an incredible two days @AAPexperience! Already getting nostalgic
