Welcome to the Show

Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the Nursing Show podcast for nurses, by nurses. I’m your host Jamie Davis and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for checking out the show this week. In the nursing and healthcare news this week, we look at how basic dietary changes can impact health significantly for good or bad.

Then, in this week’s special interview segment recorded a few weeks ago during vaccine awareness week, I got the chance to sit down and chat with pediatrician Dr. Stephen Pelton to learn how he works to influence parents to get their kids the required childhood vaccines on time. That is coming up later on in this episode.

If you want to get back in touch with me, please drop me an email. You can send those e-mails in to I love to hear from you and I make sure I respond back to every email that comes in. Send me links to news items you’d like me to cover, interview suggestions with you or somebody you know.

Tip of the Week – Promoting Child Vaccine Schedule to Parents

Girl-Doctor-Vaccine-Vaccination-babyIn a follow-up to that last news item on measles making a comeback I thought I’d bring you a special interview I did with long-time pediatrician Stephen Pelton on vaccines for children. Many vaccine-preventable childhood diseases are still circulating in the U.S. or are only a plane ride away – in fact, approximately 300 american children die each year from vaccine-preventable diseases. That’s why it’s important that children, especially infants and young children, receive the recommended vaccinations on time.

For each birth cohort that abides by the CDC’s recommended immunization schedule, 14 million cases of disease could be prevented and 33,000 lives saved according to A few weeks ago, it was National Infant Immunization Week, a week set aside as a reminder to parents to make sure they schedule their well baby check ups and vaccinations. Here to explain more about this initiative and how healthcare professionals can influence positive choices regarding vaccination is Dr. Stephen Pelton.
