  • Dr. Mom Squad

    Follow @DrMomSquad on Twitter for the latest updates from the squad! The Dayton Children's Dr. Mom Squad is made up of women who share two very important things in common: they are all doctors and they are all moms. The four women on the blog are Patricia Abboud, MD; Shalini Forbis, MD; Stacy Meyer, MD; and Melissa King, DO. These four women are joining together with three big goals in mind… to connect with other mom’s, share their medical expertise and share what it’s like to be a doctor AND a mom! Each week you will hear from a different Dr. Mom. They each come from varying specialties and have different ages of kids at home making them able to share different experiences and each provide good advice on a variety of topics! We hope the “Dr. Mom Squad,” becomes your go to source for information on your child’s health from other mom’s just like you! - See more at: http://blog.childrensdayton.org/author/melissa-king/#sthash.JxQZUIRw.dpuf
