Learn about abdominal pain in children Sunday, June 11 on Better Health for You, a new television show on Ardzagang TV that focuses on health topics for everyone in the Armenian community.
Two distinguished pediatricians, Dr. Garbis Baydar and Dr. Alycia Leidy, will discuss this condition. Dr. Baydar is a general pediatrician and Dr. Leidy is a pediatric gastroenterologist.
"These experts will help parents and grandparents to understand this symptom in children, which can be very confusing. Like our other guests on the program, these physicians are highly qualified to inform and educate the viewers," said Ohan Karatoprak, MD, who has taken leadership of the television program.
Each program will focus on a medical topic of interest to Armenian viewers. The next program will focus on cardiology and it will be aired on June 25.
