Bowel Sounds Ep. 2: Jenifer Lightdale – PEnQuINs and Making Pediatric Endoscopy Safer

In this episode of Bowel Sounds, hosts Dr. Peter Lu, Dr. Jennifer Lee, and Dr. Jason Silverman talk to NASPGHAN’s newly-elected President-Elect, Dr. Jenifer Lightdale. We discuss her work improving quality and safety in pediatric endoscopy.  Hear a brief history of pediatric endoscopy and about the Pediatric Endoscopy Quality Improvement Network (PEnQuIN) – and it's cute mascot. We also talk to Dr. Lightdale about her thoughts on why transnasal endoscopy and simulation will play important roles in the future of pediatric gastroenterology.
