Healthy Child Growth
In honor of the opening of Joe DiMaggio Children’s Health Specialty Center in Wellington on February 18, we are happy to introduce our listeners to today’s guest, Dr. Mauricio Flores, the hospital's newest pediatric endocrinologist. Dr. Flores will be seeing patients at the new Wellington facility, so we wanted him to discuss his role and provide some insights to parents about healthy growth in children.
Before our main guest's topic, our coffee chat segment discussed the potential link between synthetic chemicals in beauty products and early puberty in girls.
