I'm a pediatrician by training but find myself talking with family members of all ages about how they can live well.

The word "doctor" comes from the Latin word "docere" which means "to teach" -- something I do every day in my practice and through my work with the media, whether it's in the books and articles I write, the radio shows that I host, or the television interviews that I do. I love sharing what I know about medicine and healthy living with my patients. In fact, I find that I learn a lot from my patients as well. Now I have the chance to share my passion with the public through this Web site and hope to learn from your experiences too!
With life spans now being longer than ever, it's even more important that we try to live as well as possible. In this column, we'll discuss many aspects of healthy living and answer a wide variety of questions -- ranging from when it's safe to fly with an infant to whether it's normal for adults to get ear infections and how to make the most of your medical visits.
Remember that nothing can substitute for the advice you get from your own physician so be sure to partner with your doctor to create a personalized game plan for healthy living.
