Amy Walsh is an expert on teen health care for more reasons than just her medical degree: She’s also a mom.
So when she takes the floor at Rex Healthcare’s latest Ask the Experts event at Rex Family Practice of Wakefield on Saturday to talk teen health, she can speak from experience.
Both Walsh and her co-presenter at the event, Dr. Robert Gardner, are board-certified family physicians with a special interest in teen health. They will take questions from attendees and discuss hot topics in teen health, from stress to sexuality.
Walsh is passionate about the importance of not letting doctor visits stop when a child reaches high school. Staff writer Chelsea Kellner caught up with her last week to talk teen health.
