Our guest is Dr. Paul Dempsey a consultant pediatrician and the medical director of Quinte Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine in Belleville,Ontario, Canada

How can parents make pediatric visits better for both the child and pediatrician? What is the role of the pediatrician in the care of children with disabilities and disorders? 

The pediatrician is a vital part of your child healthcare team. As any special needs parent knows, doctor hopping and coordinating care and information between specialists is essential, yet difficult.  Join us tonight as we discuss key information for special needs parents as well as parents of athletes and the importance of understanding the risk of damage to over stressed teen bodies.
