I am proud to announce the launch of Eugene Pediatric Associates' redesigned website! EugenePeds.com serves as an extension of your child's medical home, and it has been a passion project of mine since the website was first launched in 2009.
An outbreak of measles, defined as 3 or more linked cases, is currently happening in Southwest Washington, where a state of emergency has been declared as the virus continues to spread. Portland, Oregon, also is reporting increasing cases. Lane County is NOT currently in a measles epidemic, although Lane County Public Health officials are on high alert and have asked medical facilities to be ready for the high potential of seeing cases in our area.
It's not uncommon for babies to cry for long periods of time. Sometimes, the reason for the crying is obvious, other times it's simply because they are having difficulty adapting from the womb to their new environment. And sometimes, crying is due to a medical issue. Dr. Pilar Bradshaw offers advice for parents of crying infants.
Runs with Ross, a weekly fitness activity for families sponsored by Eugene Pediatric Associates, was born out of Dr. Ross Newman's love for running, which started when he was in middle school. As a father of four, he recognizes the importance of being active with his children. As a pediatrician, he also knows that regular exercise helps reduce pediatric obesity and dangerous illnesses like type 2 diabetes.
What an exciting year 2018 has been at Eugene Pediatrics and Thrive Behavioral Health! As I look back, I give thanks for the many people and events that were part of this great year for us.
