UC Davis Children’s Hospital today launches ‘Two Peds In A Pod,’ a podcast featuring two pediatricians, Dean Blumberg and Lena Rothstein, who discuss child health topics of interest to parents in plain, non-medical language.
New subjects are considered in every episode, discussing issues from healthy pregnancy to birth to the teen years. The first episode tackles the topic of tattoos. Episodes will air every two weeks.
“We have different styles of practice and viewpoints, but our goals are the same: we want to optimize children’s health and development,” said Blumberg, chief of pediatric infectious diseases at UC Davis Children’s Hospital.
The podcast aims to provide accurate and timely information in an entertaining way to increase the confidence of parents as they address the sometimes confusing parenting issues of the day.
"We want to help parents understand the latest recommendations from pediatricians and why we have taken these positions,” Rothstein said.
