Pediatricians Promote Access in Triangle TV Outreach

Triangle-area pediatricians answered questions from 386 viewers in a two-hour Doctors on Call event hosted by WRAL-TV in Raleigh on Tuesday, June 28. Jointly sponsored by the NCMS and the NC Pediatric Society, the call-in aired during the station’s evening news block, allowing viewers to talk with a physician at no charge. NCMS member Allen G. Mask, MD hosted the program. Sixty-eight percent of the callers were in the 30 to 59 age range, with women making 84 percent of the calls.

The NCMS wishes to thank Executive Director Steve Shore and the physician leaders of the NC Chapter-American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)/NC Pediatric Society (NCPS) for their participation and support.
