Mentoring Program

The Nevada Chapter is excited to launch its brand new mentorship program! Our goal is to match mentees looking for advice in topics related to a career in pediatrics to mentors who can give unique insight in the field. The program is available to all chapter members. You can be a mentor, mentee, or both! Sign up today!   

Supporting Children after Crisis and Loss – One Year Later

Drawing on over 30 years’ experience in providing support in the aftermath of tragedy, David J Schonfeld, MD, the Director of the National Center for School Crisis and Bereavement ( SchoolCrisisCenter.org ),  offered practical advice and answered questions about what we all can do to offer support to children in times of crisis and loss, as well as how to prepare children for the one-year anniversary of 1 October.
​​Preparing for the Anniversary of 1 October: A Parent Guide for Talking with their Children is a resource that addresses questions and concerns that parents may have as we approach the one-year anniversary of the 2017 Las Vegas community shooting and offers advice on how parents can support their children.
