The weather is cooling down and it's already the start of flu season. An average healthy toddler gets six viral infections per year!
Join us for an interactive session with a Stanford trained pediatrician Dr. Monica Schwarz Josten to learn about the ways to support your child through this flu season. She will cover “red flag” symptoms to help you determine when you should take your child to a doctor. Dr. Josten will also provide guidance on ways to help your child recover from viral infections.
