Working at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) during this time of year is incredibly gratifying. In the past few weeks I have heard literally dozens of stories about groups of employees coming together to raise money for charities; conduct drives for food, toys and books; work to help the homeless; and “adopt” families to ensure that children being treated at the hospital and their parents have an enjoyable holiday.

Sometimes half is better than whole. That’s the idea behind a new multicenter study that Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is participating in to compare a five-day (short) course of antibiotic therapy with a 10-day (standard) course of therapy to treat community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) in children.

Preserving the Children’s Health Insurance Program: A No-Brainer to Protect Children in Working Families
As a pediatrician, I have a front-row seat to how health insurance impacts the well-being of children. Nearly half the patients I see are covered by Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), both of which have comprehensive sets of benefits and are historically thought of as safety nets for the unemployed.
