Featured Expert

Kate Land, MD, is a pediatrician at KP’s Vacaville Medical Center. In addition to seeing patients, she’s chief of Patient Education, a champion in KP’s Napa-Solano area for child abuse prevention, a physician communication consultant, and a mother of three. Dr. Land believes that, as parents, we each must find what works best for our families – without guilt or judgment of ourselves or others.

A fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and a member of their Council on Communications and Media, Dr. Land believes that her three children have also taught her about life’s joys and struggles. Dr. Land says that as a mother and pediatrician blogger, “I want to share some of these lessons with other parents. There are many ways to raise children well and we can all learn from each other and enjoy the path together.”

Her full biography can be found on My Doctor Online.
