Zac Mar 27

Have you ever wanted to practice mindfulness?

On this episode of PedChat, we sit down with Pediatrician, father, and host of The Child Repair Guide Podcast, Steve Silvestro. From a clown troupe with Patch Adams (yes the real Patch) to a podcast on raising healthy children, Steve walks us through his fascinating journey in pediatrics.

His response to getting out of his comfort zone is powerful: “Why not me?”

We dive into why human connections are crucial to success and get advice on how to eliminate the negative by nurturing the positive.

This episode is a can’t miss.

Sit back, relax, and become inspired.
