Follow Us on Social Media

UI Stead Family Department of Pediatrics started expanding its presence on social media in September 2021. Our content focuses on research and education within our department, job opportunities, and on Iowa City itself. We invite you to follow us and join in on the conversation. 

In addition, several of our educational programs, affiliate programs, support groups, staff, and providers have a social media presence tied to the work we do in the Stead Family Department of Pediatrics.

The professional accounts held by individuals appointed by our department have content created and curated by those individuals, and not to be taken as medical advice or University of Iowa's stance on any topics discussed in these accounts.
