Published Reviews

"This volume is an outstanding collection of clinically relevant reviews for pediatric providers at all levels. The focus is post-pandemic and there is still much to discuss in the care of pediatric patients in addition to COVID-19 disease. The authors and contributors do an excellent job. As the editor of a continuing educational pediatric journal, I highly recommend this volume."
