Pedi-Ed is the foundation for accessible, informative pediatric-patient education.

 Our Mission

By keeping children well-informed, we can empower them to take charge of their own health and help them feel confident and reassured through all of the medical obstacles they may face.

 

Our Goals

Pedi-Ed aims to bridge the gap between children and their ailments and allow them to engage with their health through informed consent and self-assurance.

 Pedi-Ed makes this possible through short and engaging, animated videos.

 

Our Vision

 In exploring the impact that pediatric-patient education and support has on overall patient care, Pedi-Ed strives to raise the standard for pediatric-patient care.

Through partnerships, we are continuing to grow and develop our content for varying pediatric medical concerns and issues.
