DescriptionLet’s laugh and learn together with Barb Bancroft RN, MSN, PNP as she explores all aspects of “Pediatricks” from absurd embryologic and fetal development, controversial “new” thinking on vaccines, why kids should eat dirt and roll around in pet dander, and on to the rollicking mysteries of the adolescent brain! Barb will help you laugh, learn, and remember why you love your chosen career!
