Gina Lockwood, MD

Pediatric urology problems are often foreign and especially scary to parents and children, as they affect such private and personal aspects of a child's life. When a parent researches these issues online, sensationalized content can contribute even further to distress. As a member of the SOU, I have the opportunity to publish evidence-based resources for patients and parents using AAP resources like HealthyChildren.org to help reassure parents, provide accurate medical information, and facilitate shared decision-making.
