If you have ever wondered about the training that Pediatrician’s receive with respect to PFD, how we should best collaborate with them regarding patient care, or how to maintain professionalism when that collaboration breaks down, then this is the raw story you need to hear. Join Michelle as she shares Tessa and her daughter’s light with the world in the pursuit of brining evidenced-based practice to the world of PFD!
