We talk a lot about finding the "right" pediatrician who will accommodate our kids' unique (ahem) medical needs. Today I found a great link at Deirdre Imus' website to the "Integrative Pediatrics Council" HERE which provides a list of "green" pediatricians throughout America (and one in Canada.) Turns out I have a green pediatrician less than ten miles from my home. Of course, I'll miss the four flu vaccine posters in my current practice's examination room and I might not need my Sharpie any longer...
While I was at Deirdre's site, I saw that you can view the replay of the webcast HERE from her "Forum on Vaccines" at Hackensack University Medical Center, in October. David Kirby was on the panel.
"The historic, first "fair and balanced forum on vaccines" generated light -- and sparks -- last Thursday among experts on both sides of the safety issue, as well as from parents concerned about new vaccine mandates in New Jersey. Nearly 300 parents, legislators, public health officials and physicians packed an auditorium at Hackensack University Medical Center (HUMC) to see the sometimes heated discussion, and hundreds more watched and submitted questions online."

Let us know if you find a green pediatrician in your neck of the woods!
