How Pediatric PittNet Help Providers

Pediatric PittNet actively disseminates research opportunities and findings to providers, staff, and parents in the practice community through a wide range of outreach strategies. Outreach to parents is conducted through original videos and slides on eMessage boards in practice waiting rooms and on our website. Outreach to providers and practice staff is conducted through lunch time teleconferences with investigators, in our network newsletter, The Paw, and regular email updates, including the Featured Study of the Month.
