Pediatric Associates Advice Nurse, Christy Carl, R.N., has served on various non-profit boards for the last thirty years, but is particularly active as the President of the Board of Directors for Milwaukie Academy of the Arts, a public charter school in the Milwaukie School District.

For some, learning in a visual or project-based manner is a method which will achieve much greater success.

Like all of us at PANW, the doctors who’ve travelled to treat the people of Haiti strongly believe that health care should be available to all. It’s not a luxury, but a basic human right, like adequate food, clean water, and shelter. We’re drawn to Haiti because of the undeniable, overwhelming needs of this underdeveloped country, and our desires to make a meaningful difference in the world.
While all of the physicians at PANW believe in the value of vaccinations, there’s one among us whose voice and thoughts on the subject might be heard a little more emphatically – or at least a little more frequently. Dr. Jay Rosenbloom.
