Charting Pediatrics

Oct 12, 2021

While the majority of Western culture tends to focus on a child’s academic readiness & success, the importance and benefits of play are critical to development. In today’s episode, we are joined by our colleagues from Nationwide Children’s Hospital to talk about a recent article they published about the important role that individual and group play has in child development.

This episode is part of our Resident Files series where we are pleased to feature the thoughts and work of the talented pediatric residents.

Today's guests are Dr. Gabriella Gonzales, PGY3 at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Dr. Alex Rakowsky, Associate Program Director of the Pediatric Residency Program at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at The Ohio State University.

Article cited in this episode: The Importance of Play by Gabriella Gonzales, MD and Alex Rakowsky, MD to be published Fall 2021 in Peds in Review.
