Ped's R Us

Downstate's Pediatrics Club is a forum for all university students to learn about and contribute to children's healthcare and wellness issues through educational and recreational activities. Academically, from lectures and panels by professionals, we hope to gain useful knowledge that can be applied in clinical and other interactive settings with children.

Other activities include a reading hour in the pediatrics ward, conducting health education in neighborhood schools, and sponsoring a cooperative community fair with other organizations.

Meetings take place every month with events scheduled three times a semester.

All university students are invited to participate. Coordinators may be contacted through the Student Center.
