Updates in Pediatrics Completes First Ever Primary Readership Study 

Updates in Pediatrics is distributed weekly via e mail and provides concise information about a broad range of current pediatric topics to enhance the education of practicing primary care pediatricians. The digital version of Updates in Pediatrics commenced publication in the late winter of 2010. The newsletter is a joint venture of Miami Children's Hospital and FHIcommunications and boasts almost 5,000 readers. The publication's first ever Primary Readership Study was conducted in February, 2014.


"We couldn't be more pleased with the results" stated Editor Jack Wolfsdorf, MD, FAAP.  "We knew we were heading in the right direction based on audience growth and engagement metrics; this study reinforces those findings and, in fact, exceeded our expectations" he added.   The results of the study can be viewed HERE
