For the clinical spotlight this summer, we are highlighting the Sensory Pathway at Children's of Alabama. The Sensory Pathway offers patients resources that decrease sensory overload which can be experienced during a hospital visit. Dr. Baxley asked your questions regarding the Sensory Pathway to Physician Leader Dr. Michele Kong and Sensory Pathway Coordinator, Chelsea Brown.

Food is Medicine Podcast

For children with kidney failure, the proper diet is crucial. Eating the wrong type or amount of food can be devastating or even deadly. To make matters worse, the diet these children need is difficult to curate. That’s why Children’s of Alabama nephrologists Daniel Feig, M.D., and Sahar Fathallah-Shaykh, M.D., started the Food is Medicine program.
