New Fifth Fridays Lecture Series at St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children

Join us this Friday when Dr. Larry White inaugurates the “Fifth Fridays at St. Mary’s Home” lecture series featuring physicians who work with St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children. We’ve designed the series to raise awareness of issues affecting children with disabilities.

White, a neurologist at Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters, will kick things off with a discussion of  “Seizures in the Special Needs Child,” with some time for Q&A. He’ll speak from 1-2 p.m. in St. Mary’s Atrium.

Call 757.622.2208 or see our website for more information.

And mark your calendars for the next “Fifth Fridays” lecture at 1 p.m. on July 30, when Dr. Marc Tsou, GI specialist at CHKD, will discuss “GI Problems Related to Special Needs Children.”
