Nowadays, setting up a playdate involves a complete medical history, allergy list, and epi-pen instructions. 🤪
1 in 3 kids suffer from the issues listed above. Probably more. Maybe your child is struggling with one, too?
It's not that we're more aware of the issues now - the incidence of these illnesses has increased over time.…

Kids are sicker than ever.
By the age of 16, 54% of children have a chronic illness diagnosis.
I was really hoping that by this point in my career I'd have good news on this front, but things are only getting worse.
And even more concerning…
The tools we use to help kids heal are becoming less and less effective.
