Lerner Children's Pavilion Pediatric Newsletter
Roger Widmann, MD Welcome to the Fall 2016 edition of Stronger Safer Happier – The Lerner Children’s Pavilion pediatric e-newsletter. You'll find educational articles on injury prevention, the latest research and treatments, pediatric conditions, and helpful infographics.

I'd also like to share some news. I'm proud to report that pediatrics was among the services featured in a lengthy U.S. News & World Report article about HSS. The hospital was once again ranked No. 1 in orthopedics nationwide in their "Best Hospitals" issue.

Finally, I'm hoping you'll join us at the Hospital's 10th Annual Benefit to support pediatric care and research. This year, we'll be enjoying Cirque du Soleil's "Kurios” - Cabinet of Curiosities on Saturday, November 19. Click here for more information and to purchase tickets.

In the meantime, enjoy the newsletter!
