A Day in the Life:  Would You Like to be Featured in the Pulse of Pediatrics?

“A Day in the Life” was a recent newsletter idea submission from a fellow reader. It would enable newsletter subscribers to learn about what you do in your role and the impact you have on the department. We’re currently accepting volunteers (to be interviewed and photographed) for this recurring newsletter feature. If interested, please email Peveeta Seeraj at pseeraj@ufl.edu.
