I have been pursuing the best possible in-roads to make changes when children visit their doctor’s office with flu-like symptoms and I had an in-depth discussion with someone recently who gave me valuable advice for action.
Our initial go round has been submitted for approval by the grants committee for a publicity campaign to doctor’s offices. This will take some time and at least there is movement in this state-wide initiative. I will keep you posted. We need to do more.
The next step is larger in scope and it is here where I MUST ask your help; for without your help this will go no where. I need official letters of YOUR experiences if the diagnosis of your child was missed at the doctor’s office and what ensued afterward
I am tired of this happening and I will not sit still any longer; I said it a million times, just ‘don’t do nothing’. Will it work? I am not sure but doing nothing is unacceptable to me and we should certainly try. Will you join me?
