Three girls on the beach

July 1, 2019 – Whoa. Where did June go?

In case you missed it, we have moved from the spring banner, “Young Child Looks Like My Oldest Daughter“, to our new summer banner: “Three Girls on the Beach“.

A few goings on at RCAM this summer:

1-Camp Physicals, Sports Physicals, Well Visits

Their is a lot of wellness going around again this summer with a lot of families taking care of their annual physicals.

If your child needs a sports physical, your child’s annual well visit will cover that.

Also, remember that a sports physical is valid for sports participation in Wake County Public Schools for 13 months after the date of exam.

So, if your health insurance is like mine and requires 365 days between each will visit, you still have another month to schedule your child’s next well visit / sports physical. Don’t be pressured into going to an Urgent Care of Minute Clinic – taking your child to see their pediatrician for their annual visit is very important.

2-Nurse Shannon B. Had a Baby Boy

Many of you have been following the pregnancy of Shannon B., one of our nurses from our Brier Creek office.

A few weeks ago she gave birth to her baby boy. He weighed in at a healthy 6 lbs and 9 oz. Everyone is doing great.

3-Dr. Carr’s Last Day at RCAM is August 28th

Dr. Carr has been a huge part of Raleigh Childrens & Adolescents Medicine for quite some time.

Next month she will retire after almost 40 years of caring for the children of the Triangle.

How do you say goodbye to a legend?
