Farewell Dr. Roach Murray
It is with mixed emotions that we announce that Dr. Jamie Roach Murray will no longer be practicing general pediatrics. Dr. Roach Murray is making a change in her career path to pursue education and employment in the field of health care policy. Dr. Roach Murray was a dedicated member of our physician team for seven years. She was an outstanding clinician and made many contributions to our practice during her tenure with us. Although she will be sorely missed by her patients and everyone at Stamford Pediatrics we wish her only the best in her future endeavors. Click here to read a letter from Dr. Roach Murray.
Book Review – The Explosive Child
The Explosive Child, written by Ross Greene, Ph.D., a psychology professor at Harvard Medical School, offers a compassionate and functional approach to understanding children who react explosively to everyday frustrations. The volatility and inflexibility of these children can require a tremendous amount of energy from their parents, interfere with sibling relations, and, worse, drain the joy from family life. Nancy H. Sedlack, Ph.D. is a clinical child psychologist working as a parenting consultant at Stamford Pediatrics. She would be happy to meet you to further discuss this book or any other issues concerning your children. Click here for the full book review.
New Mom’s Group
Come join the New Mom’s Support Group… friends made, questions answered and reassurance provided!
The New Mom’s Support Group is a bi-monthly informal meeting for moms of newborns held every other Wednesday from 1 pm to 2 pm in our Darien office. The goal of this group is to assist in making this exciting but scary and exhausting period in a parent’s life as fulfilling as possible and to serve as a support system. It is a place to share concerns, questions, and experiences.
Stamford Pediatric Associates is excited to join many Darien community organizations as a partner with the Thriving Youth: Connected Community initiative.
As a member of the Thriving Youth Task Force, Dr. Jamie Roach Murray has learned about the results of the Search Institute study that was done in Darien regarding Developmental Assets in our youth.
Congratulations Dr. Henkind! She has been recognized by Connecticut Magazine as a Top Doc since 2011.
