"We all know the proverbial saying “It takes a village to raise a child”. As a community pediatrician I feel it is my duty and joy to be part of and contribute to a community in raising healthy children. I also feel responsible to look out for the well‐being of the entire community. If we, as community pediatricians, succeed, our children will raise our village." - Dr. Alina Olteanu
