Guest: Kurt Newman, MD, President and CEO, Children’s National, Washington, D.C. If there’s one takeaway for parents from pediatric surgeon Kurt Newman’s new memoir it is this: in a medical emergency, like a broken bone or a concussion, it’s crucial to take your child to an ER that specializes in treating kids. Not just the closest ER. The most child-focused ER. Dr. Newman’s memoir is called “Healing Children: A Surgeon’s Stories from the Frontiers of Pediatric Medicine.” He’s the President and CEO of Children’s National in Washington, DC., which ranks in the top ten best children’s hospitals in the country.
