November 3, 2017 – When is the last time a pediatrician spoke up for Burger King?

Well – here comes a very favorable review.

I am giving Burger King 5 stars STAR STAR STAR STAR STAR for the following Public Service Announcement. 

Way to go BK!

Ask your children about bullying. Do they see it? Have they been bullied? Have they ever picked on someone else? Then ask yourself the same questions (actually – maybe that should come first).

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers some good advice here about how to ask and how to stay engaged with what is going on with your child when you are not around.

ADHD Scholarship

February 18, 2016 – RCAM recently became aware of a college scholarship from Shire that selects from applicants with ADHD who have been accepted to or are currently enrolled in an undergraduate program.

The details are listed in the flyer above. The student does not necessarily have to be on medication for ADHD to be eligible.

The deadline is March 9th.

Each scholarship has a value of $2,000 and includes 1 year of ADHD coaching services.

Last year there were just over 2000 applicants and 54 scholarships were awarded. Not bad odds for a college scholarship.

Four of the 54 awards given were to students from North Carolina.

Good luck to all of our patients making plans to attend college next year.
