Blog. We have 3 blogs written by 3 dedicated pediatricians on the Editorial Board of Consultant for Pediatricians. With each post, our bloggers cover a new topic and invite your feedback:

Linda S. Nield, MD, Series Editor of “Parent Coach” (see “Strength Training in Children”), writes about tough issues in pediatrics. In her latest post “‘A-maze-ing’ Immunization,” she describes the difficulty she has had with mastering the “maze” of vaccine schedules and calls on readers to pass along any tips. How do you keep these schedules straight?

Golder N. Wilson, MD, PhD, Series Editor of “Congenital Disorders Quick Quiz,” wishes to promote a greater understanding of childhood genetic disease. In his short photo quizzes, he provides a clinical presentation and prompts readers to make a diagnosis; he follows this with a brief discussion. In his latest post, he describes 2 patients with short stature who have 2 different diagnoses. Can you identify the genetic disorder in each patient?

Lane M. Robson, MD shares his volunteer experience serving as a pediatrician in a rural clinic in Nicaragua. In his post “Learning Spanish,” for instance, he describes the importance of having a good interpreter when there is a language barrier between physician and patient/family. He would greatly appreciate your comments and suggestions in support of his efforts.
