Taking a public health success story even further…..

We have launched new video series: Ask Your Big Sister Who Just Happens To Be A Highly-experienced, Board-certified Pediatrician.

In this series, I will answer frequently asked questions that I get from patients, parents, friends, family, and through social media. My answers will be based on the latest scientific evidence for that topic.

Full disclosure: I will answer like a big sister, which means I may be a little NSFW and uncomfortably blunt at times.

If you have a question you would like me to include in this video series, you can DM us or post a comment on Facebook or Twitter or email us info@culverpediatrics.com
