Verdun community pediatrics center
Our Community Social Pediatrics Center, a registered charity, helps children aged 0 to 14 living in the Verdun Borough, as well as their families.
Respect for children’s rights, working in partnership with families as well as with local organizations, the proximity of the services offered, and the development of each individual’s potential and strengths act as powerful levers for motivation and change.
Community social pediatrics as told by Suzanne Pelletier, social pediatrician
Social pediatrics in brief
Community social pediatrics is an innovative approach to integrative medicine that builds on the strengths of the child, family and community.
Its model aims to identify and reduce the sources and impacts of toxic stress in childhood. A team of caregivers allows children and their families to benefit from the expertise of medicine, social sciences and law in one warm and welcoming place.
