When children come to Rose Brooks Center, they too are wrapped in services, including addressing their healthcare needs. Because of this, and as part of our Health Services Program, Rose Brooks offers a pediatric clinic twice each month with the help of pediatrician, Dr. Deann DeWitt.
As children develop, it is vital that they are seen by a physician who understands their unique health needs. It should also be noted that regular pediatric care can help provide the parent with new knowledge, allowing them to feel more confident in their own parenting. With 30 years of experience, Dr. DeWitt knows the importance of offering such specialized care and volunteers her time.
When asked why she decided to help provide such a needed resource, she responded, “I understand that not everyone has equal access to healthcare and I wanted to give back in a way that was meaningful to both Rose Brooks and their youngest residents.” She continues on to explain that it is so heartwarming to hear the children thank her for helping them — and cherishes each hug she receives.
Dr. DeWitt assists children of all ages and helps them with their immediate and long-term healthcare needs, while answering questions and providing support to parents. Dr. DeWitt is also a member of Rose Brooks Center’s Medical Advisory Board. The advisory board is a group of professionals who have been donating their time, talent, and health services knowledge to better meet the medical and health care needs of Rose Brooks Center’s clients.
