In Case of Emergency | Dr. Kurt Newman "Healing Children"
7 days ago
Do you have an action plan if your child needs immediate emergency care?
What if your mama gut instinct contradicts the specialist you are consulting with?
And if your kid gets hurt, should you really drive to a children's hospital if it's further away than the good hospital down the street?
Dr. Kurt Newman, CEO of one of the top children's hospitals in the country and pediatric surgeon extraordinaire, shares life lessons and life-saving tips from his new memoir "Healing Children: A Surgeon's Stories from the Frontiers of Pediatric Medicine" (Penguin Random House, June 2017).
For generations, our esteemed guest has healed children, empowered families, and improved the pediatric medical system. Your heart will melt from the lesson he shares from a date night gone wrong with his future wife. And you'll get revved up when we discuss how the proposed health care plan directly effects children in this country.
No matter your kids' ages, this episode will make you a better mama bear when they need you most!
