A Word From Vincent Iannelli, MD

With my strong interest in pediatrics and the Internet, I think that I can help pediatricians and parents find the resources they need to help care for their children. Upcoming topics will include information on promoting healthy nutrition, recognizing developmental delays and providing information about behavioral issues and under-treated conditions, especially asthma, depression, learning disabilities, and childhood obesity.
