“Develop a passion for learning.
If you do, you will never cease to grow.” -Anthony J. D’Angelo

The Infectious Diseases in Children Symposium offered Dr. Jill and P.J. the opportunity to reinforce their knowledge of common pediatric conditions such as strep throat and ear infections, update their practice guidelines with hot-off-the-press clinical research, and network with other general pediatricians in the area.

The Healthy Kids Team will continue to learn and grow in order to provide your family with exceptional pediatric care and be the trusted medical home you deserve.



Tweens, Teens, and Their Screens: Dr. Jill Shares her Thoughts on HLN’s Morning Express at CNN’s Warner Media Studios in New York City

Dr. Jill HLNIn a time where 53% of kids have their own smartphone by the time they are 11 years old, it is more important than ever that families develop and follow strict boundaries regarding screen time and access to media outlets to help prevent our children from the addictive and non-productive aspects of media exposure.

Adding in more daily movement and family activities and less passive tablet, smartphone, and computer time outside of classroom responsibilities will greatly help our children stay fitter and slimmer and will preserve their creativity, focus, and overall brain health.

Healthy Kids Pediatrics was proud to sponsor and participate in The Celebrate Life Ride 2019 on Tuesday in New York City.

Cycling enthusiasts from as far away Salt Lake City and Chicago came together to ride 35 miles and enjoy some beautiful weather!

Riders were guided on a scenic urban adventure route that started in Fort Lee, NJ, continued down the Weehawken/Hoboken promenade, then cruised over The Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, and George Washington Bridge. The event also included a delicious lunch stop at the famous Grimaldi’s Pizza!

From the pre-event breakfast through the post-event victory lap dinner, Healthy Kids loved being a part of such a unique and exceptional experience that promotes friendship, wellness, and paying it forward.
