North Carolina Pediatric Society, Inc (ncpeds)
"The North Carolina Pediatric Society (NCPS) and the North Carolina Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics is one organization with two names representing over 1,200 pediatricians in the state. Pediatricians' activities range from office care of infants, children and adolescents to age 21, to research and teaching at one of the state’s five academic medical centers, to child advocacy in the private and public sectors.
Pediatricians focus on the normal growth, development and emotional well being of their patients through a schedule of well child evaluations recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Early recognition of abnormalities and intervention to correct or ameliorate problems is at the heart of pediatric practice.
Preventive care is the emphasis of these visits including immunizations and screening (before symptoms develop) for anemia, lead, vision and hearing problems and others. Our members are child health advocates."
