Dr. Francie Chalmers, MD, co-founder of Skagit Pediatrics, has seen our community expand and many children grow up over the past 40 years. Despite retiring from formal practice, she continues to advocate for local families. In her role as Physician Champion for Help Me Grow Skagit, Dr. Chalmers is working with providers on our new Help Me Grow referral system, identifying training needs, convening quarterly Perinatal and Pediatric Health Care Provider Network meetings, and supporting systematic surveillance and screening of young children. Thank you, Dr. Chalmers, for bringing your voice and expertise to this work and helping all families with young children thrive. If you would like to set up a time for Dr. Chalmers to talk with your clinic providers and/or staff, please email her at FChalmers.MD@gmail.com.
