“We know that a child’s brain development in the first three years of life is critical to social and emotional well being over a lifetime. We aim to not only optimize this important developmental period for the families we serve, but also for our staff/employees and their families.” – Vibrant Health Pediatrician, Dr. Amber Morgan
