Canceled due to travel delay. Grand Rounds on Thursday, Sept. 19, will occur as scheduled.

Despite exceedingly successful efforts to enhance the physical lives of children over the last century, pediatricians are commonly poorly prepared to assist with the emotional and mental health needs of today’s families and youth. Dr. Victoria Norwood’s discussion will address national efforts to enhance pediatric training in behavioral/mental health and engage the practicing pediatric community in strategies for positive change.

In addition to continuing her active practice in nephrology, Dr. Norwood just completed a term on the Review Committee for Pediatrics of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and is the ChairElect of the American Board of Pediatrics.
