Dr. Vargas Interviewed on Postpartum Depression

Dr. Vargas discussed Postpartum Depression in a recent interview on KJZZ public radio.
 
As president-elect of the Arizona Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), Dr. Jason Vargas was interviewed by Lauren Gilger of KJZZ on the pediatrician’s role in accessing Postpartum Depression (PPD), which is the most common medical complication of childbirth. It affects up to one in five women and yet, for many new mothers recognizing the problem and getting diagnosed is a challenge. 
 
Dr. Vargas discussed the importance of early identification and intervention for PPD and the AAP’s recommendation for pediatricians to conduct routine screening for PPD in mothers during well-child visits. You can listen to the interview here
