“There are newer diseases- HIV, Lyme…but there are fewer instances of meningitis, whooping cough, measles, chicken pox…all because of vaccines.. Younger preemies not only survive but are living better lives. Asthma, though a big problem has much better treatment compared to 20 years ago. Pediatrics has become more outpatient oriented, which is good…!”
