Brody Profs Edit Book on Hospital Care of Children

By Doug Boyd

Faculty members at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University have published a textbook on the hospital care of children.

Dr. Ronald Perkin, professor and chairman of pediatrics at the medical school, and Dr. Dale Newton, professor of pediatrics, edited “Pediatric Hospital Medicine: Textbook of Inpatient Management,” which contains clinical information on the care of hospitalized children.

Half of the chapters were written or co-written by health care professionals affiliated with Children’s Hospital of University Health Systems of Eastern Carolina.

Dr. James D. Swift of the University of Nevada and Dr. Nick G. Anas of the University of California-Los Angeles also were editors of the book, which is the second edition of the original published in 2003.

The book is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
