I am a pediatrician, a husband, and a dad. I live and work in the Portland, Oregon area. I am also a public health and public policy nut. All content on this website is my own.

I believe the best future for our country and for the world will only be realized if we consider children in every policy decision: kids in all policies. This blog is intended to document the impact, as I see it, that public policies will have on America's children. I hope to spur an ongoing discussion that will infuse the best interests of children into public policy decision-making. I welcome your polite feedback and ideas.

Thanks for reading,

Peter Reed, MD MPH
