COVID Vaccine & Kids: Managing Potential Allergic Reactions with Matthew Greenhawt, MD (S4:E38)
After a long 18 months of living through a pandemic, vaccines have paved a way forward to a new normal – Just 6 weeks ago, the Pfizer vaccine received emergency use authorization for adolescents down to age 12; and here at Children’s Colorado, we are a Pfizer vaccine trial site for kids ages 5-11. As more of our pediatric patients become eligible for the vaccine, primary care providers will be considering how to safely vaccinate patients with a risk of allergic reaction. In this episode, we will talk about the incidence, suspected epidemiology and current policy related to allergic reactions to the SARS-CoV-2 vaccines and steps for avoiding potential adverse reactions. Today's guest is Dr. Matt Greenhawt, Director of the Food Challenge and Research Unit at Children’s Hospital Colorado and Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Section of Allergy & Immunology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.  Do you have thoughts about today's episode or suggestions for a future topic?

Refugee & Immigrant Health in Pediatrics with Janine Young, MD (S4:E34)
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, 1 in 4 children in the United States are part of an immigrant family unit. By definition, immigrant children are those born outside the United States or who have at least one foreign-born parent. In the last decade, global conflicts have propelled the migration of these families, creating a more diverse migrant population and given rise to divisive sociopolitical policy in our country. Like all children, the experiences of this patient population are diverse and have direct impacts on their biopsychosocial development. Additionally, this patient population may face unique challenges of inequity that can threaten their health and wellbeing. In this episode, we will talk through considerations that pediatric medical providers can make that are uniquely supportive to the refugee and immigrant patient population. For this discussion we are pleased to be joined by a colleague from the broader pediatrics community in Denver, Janine Young, MD. Dr. Young is the Medical Director of the Denver Health Refugee Clinic; Co-Medical Director of the Denver Health Human Rights Clinic and Medical Advisor for the Colorado Refugee Services Program. She is also Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Do you have thoughts about today's episode or suggestion for a future topic?

COVID Vaccines and Kids with Eric France, MD, CMO of the Colorado Dept. of Public Health & Environment (S4:E32)
Last week, the federal government took a final step toward making the Pfizer COVID vaccine available to adolescents in the U.S. when the CDC formally recommended the vaccine for use in children ages 12 to 15. The approval of the vaccine for our adolescent patients is exciting. It also presents a unique opportunity for us, as pediatricians, to spend time engaging with families to address their questions and share our confidence in this vaccine. In this episode, we are fortunate to be joined by Dr. Eric France, Chief Medical Officer at the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment.  Do you have thoughts about today's episode or suggestions for a future topic?

Managing Button Battery & Other Foreign Body Ingestions with David Brumbaugh, MD (Rebroadcast S3:E39)
Today we are joining Trainees for Child Injury Prevention (T4CIP) for their Day of Action in bringing attention to high-powered magnet injuries in kids and teens. T4CIP is a group of pediatricians and medical trainees from across the country who are passionate about childhood injury prevention. High-powered magnets have caused thousands of injuries and are considered to be among the most dangerous ingestion hazards in children. Calls to Poison Centers about High-Powered Magnets Increased by 444% after Ban Lifted We encourage you to join this national collaboration by posting messages on social media throughout today (May 19, 2021) using #MagnetSafety and participating in a Twitter chat at 1-2 p.m. ET using the same hashtag.  Kids are notorious for exploring small objects and putting them up their nose, in their ear or swallowing them. Some ingestions like button batteries and small, b-b sized magnets are potentially life-threatening for children and adolescents. Catastrophic and fatal injuries can occur when the object becomes lodged in the esophagus, where injury can extend beyond the esophagus to the trachea or aorta. In this episode, we are going to turn the mic on host, David Brumbaugh, MD, to look at the presentation and treatment of ingested foreign objects and the anticipatory guidance primary care providers can give to their patients and families. What our listeners may not know about Dr. Brumbaugh is that he has a job beyond co-hosting Charting Pediatrics; he is a pediatric gastroenterologist and Chief Medical Officer at Children’s Hospital Colorado and is Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

Resident Files: Improving Care for Medically Complex Young Adults (S4:E31) with Michelle Brajcich, MD, Sam Robin, MD & Hannah Friedman, MD
Complex patients are increasingly common in primary care and often have poor clinical outcomes. Barriers within our healthcare system challenge effective care for complex patients within our hospital systems, but less is known about the potential impact and meaning of caring for complex patients on a daily basis for primary care providers (PCPs). Today, we are going to talk about improving care for medically complex young adults, including their experiences of health system barriers and facilitators and their strategies to enhance provision of effective care. In our series, the Resident Files, we explore efforts of Children's Hospital Colorado and CU School of Medicine pediatric residents to examine the social determinants of health that impact the patients they see in primary care clinic and how all pediatric providers can make considerations for these impacts in their own practice. Our guests for this Resident File episode are Dr. Michelle Brajcich, PGY3; Dr. Samantha Robin PGY2 and Dr. Hannah Friedman PGY2.
