 July 29, 2016 – EDITOR’S NOTE: Raleigh Children continues a regular feature that attempts to answer the question,

“What are the best resources available to our families for pediatric medical information and guidance?”

We define “best resource” as being:

  • Based on the best science
  • Presented in a practical and easy-to-understand format
  • Regularly updated as we find new things
  • Not a replacement for your pediatrician’s advice – intended to supplement and keep everyone well informed!

Today’s Topic: With the completion of both political party conventions, let’s lighten the mood and look at resources intended to help us all…
