The Kid's DoctorTM
Get a dose of advice from The Kid's Doctor, www.kidsdr.com, award-winning pediatrician Dr. Sue Hubbard, who also hosts a popular television show by the same name. "Dr. Sue" reaches thousands of parents with her down-to-earth columns centered around her busy medical practice aimed at infants through teenagers. She understands how parents can agonize over a baby's rash, a toddler's fever or a teen overwhelmed by stress--and she's ready to help.
Each Kid's Doctor column spotlights a common childhood illness or other health-related issue, delivered in Hubbard's fresh, conversational style. Whether her focus is on infants, toddlers, tweens or teens, Hubbard offers reliable, practical advice based on more than 20 years' experience as a practicing physician, medical editor, radio and TV host. The mother of three, Hubbard champions parents struggling to cope with everything from childhood obesity to the perils of surgery, a wicked sunburn, or stubborn separation anxiety.
