November 8, 2019 Pediatrician For President Educates & Activates Community In October 2019, Pediatrician For President launched his campaign to educate, motivate, and activate supporters and community leaders on early childhood issues. About Are you passionate about improving the health and wellbeing of children in the United States of America? Consider supporting Pediatrician For President in his campaign to engage, entertain, and educate the community on the following concepts: there is a national need to put a greater focus on Kids Health (and everything that impacts health); science and evidence-based medicine is important and should guide our path; and we could all spread more kindness and appreciate the kindness we receive. Pediatrician For President is a project established by Kids Plus Pediatrics. While Dr. Todd Wolynn will be portraying the character of Pediatrician For President, Wolynn is not running for president. About the Issues Pediatrician For President launched his campaign on the following beliefs: 1. Significant changes and investments are needed in Kids Health. Currently, the United States healthcare system is failing kids. “We need care – not coverage!” Moms, dads, caregivers, and community health are suffering and must be addressed to support the healthy development and wellbeing of children. We need meaningful Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) solutions. Human dignity and respect must be given to nurture the best in people. 2. Science is good (not perfect) but continues to improve and is a key to guiding our path. Research is necessary to continue to improve science and its guidance and requires significant support. We must reaffirm what science indicates as fact and dispel myths. Anti-science efforts must be combated and their ulterior motives to monetize, polarize, and politize must be exposed. 3. Kindness is abundant and renewable if we’re mindful and generous. This is not a plea for civility. Rather, the campaign seeks to remind us to keep our hearts open. The campaign will never suggest that people should not be angry. However, the campaign is rooted in a positive approach and with the intention to bring necessary change. We are all human, we are all connected, and compassion is good. Compassion puts us on the path to bring change to resolve suffering. Why Should You Support? Pediatrician For President: is completely aligned with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) policies and positions and will frequently direct and refer to AAP policies, statements, and resources; is kind, passionate, and respectful: he will never sling mud, swear, or insult; emulates Mister Rogers’ from his deep, true nurturing of his Congressional testimony combined with ‘Kid President’ matter-of-fact awesomeness; and his superpowers are his Pediatrician’s desire to help kids and families, his trust of the community, and his drive to bring about positive change The Plan Pediatrician For President is a centrist campaign – similarly to how the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) achieves bi-partisan support with a “Put Kids First” agenda. The campaign believes that kids, science, and kindness are three issues that many community members are passionate about and are willing to stand behind to make the United States of America and the world a better place. Pediatrician For President will never attack, celebrate, or acknowledge any particular political party or candidate. Rather, he will stay focused on the issues while reminding everyone about what makes us human and connected. Pediatricians, Pediatric Providers, and Pediatric Practices are some of the most trusted professions and organizations in the United States of America. While initial support may come from these groups, the campaign hopes families, friends, and their friends will rally behind this effort to better the lives of children and the community.
