Twice as Nice Advice from Dean’s Dr. Moms!

Meet the Dean doctors who will blog about everyday parenting challenges and successes

Have you ever had a parenting or health question that you’d love your physician’s advice on — but didn’t need an in-person appointment to handle it? We’ve all been there.

From health tips and nutrition plans to behavioral advice, every mom needs a little support from time to time. Dean’s Dr. Moms are navigating these same parenting challenges.

They don’t have all the answers, but they want to help you by giving advice from a unique perspective: physician and mom.
