Cynthia and I also had the opportunity to speak to pediatric residents at the Montreal Children's Hospital the other day. Thanks for the invite to Dr. Shuvo Ghosh. It was illuminating for us and we hope the audience. Cynthia's wish list for parents also gets a shoutout in the New York Times in the Motherlode Website. Thanks to KJ Della'antonio for posting it and posting the link to this website. We love being in the Times.
