Pediatrics publishes article by F. Ralph Berberich and Neil L. Schechter!
Dr. Schechter's article, "Pediatric Office Pain: Crying for Attention" was published in the March, 2012 issue of Pediatrics, the official journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics. The abstract appears in the print version and a .pdf version is available on their website (click here to read the article online).
The article highlights the often-overlooked problem of the lack of research into pain in the outpatient setting, compared to inpatient settings. It is one example of the fine work and attention to our patients that our team exhibits every day.
Congratulations, Dr. Schechter!
It is our great pleasure to announce that Althea Hankey, Billing Coordinator for the Pain Treatment Service at 333 Longwood, has been named one of Children’s Hospital Boston’s 2012 Black Achievers!
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
