Pediatrics #1: A pediatrician is held responsible for caring for newborns up to the point that they reach adulthood. We make sure that a child is maturing into a healthy adult. One of the main ways that pediatricians are able to take on this task is by playing close attention to the signs that he or she sees. Peds looks to maintain the healthy lives of children as they grow & develope/mature.
