Upcoming Seminars:
Just a reminder for our parents of multiples that there is a free seminar Wednesday, March 13th from 7:00-8:30 pm entitled “Raising Twins: How to Survive and Thrive” and will be held at the Nichols Library here in Naperville.  Speakers will be Shelly Flais, MD and Julian Tang, MD who are both parents of twins.  Dr. Flais is also the author of “Raising Twins From Pregnancy to Preschool” which was published by the American Academy of Pediatrics.    This is a great opportunity to ask questions and even meet with other parents of multiples.
 
A new seminar is also available at the Bolingbrook Hospital on childhood obesity on Thursday, March 21st.  Nithya Sunder MD will be speaking on childhood obesity at the Bolingbrook Hospital on Thursday, March 21st at 7 pm.
