Mission:

“In the inaugural January 1948 issue of Pediatrics, the editor, Hugh McCulloch, articulated the journal’s vision: “The content of the journal is… intended to encompass the needs of the whole child in his physiologic, mental, emotional, and social structure. The single word, Pediatrics, has been chosen to indicate this catholic intent.”
