Giving back to our community is important to everyone at Willows Pediatrics. We are grateful to have been able to give back to both our local and wider community the past year. Teaching the next generation of physicians is vital for the future of medicine. A number of medical students from the Yale University School of Medicine spent time in our office observing the practice of pediatric primary care and examining patients under the guidance of our physicians. We would like to thank the many families who welcomed the Yale students as they worked with us.
We also had the opportunity to support breast cancer research by joining the Norma Pfriem Breast Cancer Center in the “Pink Pledge” for breast cancer awareness during the month of October. Together with Miller Nissan and the Aquarian Pink Pledge car, we supported this cause through the sale of bracelets and pink ribbons.
Also in October, Willows supported the “Halloween on the Green” event in Fairfield held at the Museum Commons. The popular family event featured kid friendly activities such as interactive displays in the historic buildings, a bounce house, and surprise trick or treat give always. Drs. Allison, Sheiman, and Owens enjoyed seeing many of our patients and parents who visited the Willows Pediatrics table at the event.
We look forward to more of the same for 2019!
