Requesting Support on Advocacy Issue for Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics

The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) is proposing changes to how pediatric residents are trained to evaluate and care for patients with developmental disabilities and behavior challenges. The proposed changes would remove the requirement for a board-certified DBP to teach the pediatric residents, and instead allow pediatric residency program directors to have faculty without DBP board certification to teach the residents. Please lend your voice to oppose these critical changes in pediatric residency education by posting comments on the ACGME Review and Comment page before April 5, 2023.

Imaging Tech Produces Real-time 3D Maps of Uterine Contractions During Labor

Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have developed new imaging technology that can produce 3D maps showing the magnitude and distribution of uterine contractions in real time and across the entire surface of the uterus during labor.

Disability is not right or wrong�it just IS." Kathy Bates shares her thoughts on the role that language plays in terms of disability in her most recent blog post, "She's Nobody Special."
