Recently one of our team members wrote an article entitled, “What do all of these letters mean?” This article provided a brief overview of the post-nominal letters (those initials after someone’s name) we so often see while navigating the health world. Some of you asked for more information (thank you for your input!), so now we are delivering. This post reviews the details about certain health professionals. Review the image below which highlights some of the main points regrading education, medication, and therapy.

Be on the lookout for our next post which will discuss how to find the right healthcare professional for your family. As always, if you have questions or thoughts please leave them in the comments section or email us at socialmediastudy@chp.edu
