Parenthood is a wonderfully joyful, humbling and incredibly hard journey. But it's especially difficult for parents whose children struggle with mental health and developmental concerns.
Dr. Ross Newman is a longtime runner and coach and he wants to share the trail with you and your kids! Join him weekly, starting Saturday, Sept. 29, along with others from Eugene Pediatric Associates. Our goal is to have fun and stay active.
There are many wonderful nonprofits in our community working hard to care for and support children. I recently visited an organization called Bags of Love and, after seeing the vital and heartfelt work they are doing on behalf of kids, I am committed to lending my support.
Your team at Eugene Pediatrics is always looking for ways to address important health concerns for kids and families, and we lead our community in efforts that we believe will protect everyone's health, most of all our precious children.
