The New Journal Blog

Welcome to the journal blog! We hope that this will serve as a forum for discussion of various topics within the field of Pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology, and nutrition. Our blog entries will focus primarily on the impact of current, previous, or future JPGN articles within our field and practice, as well as how they may relate to important current medical news. We also hope to highlight important issues within academic and private practice medicine, including research and funding topics important to physicians and practitioners within Pediatric gastroenterology.
