Lifting the Voices and Stories of Pediatricians

#WeArePediatricians is a campaign focused on showing all the ways pediatricians care for the health of children, whether that’s reducing children’s exposure to environmental toxins, making sure children have access to lifesaving immunizations, or helping them manage their use of social media so it enhances rather than harms their mental health. Really, highlighting all of the ways – big and small – that pediatricians nurture, care for, and empower ALL children and teens to thrive.

"Pediatrics is a superpower."

Caring for children — sometimes through serious illnesses — can give you a unique perspective on what’s important. Dr. Francisco Silva talks about what motivates him to do the work and why a career in pediatrics is its own superpower.
