About Us

The Northwest Louisiana Pediatric Society re-established in 2011-2012.  Drs. Margaret Crittell, Dr. Emily Hobson and Dr. Megan Gardner worked hard to bring this vital organization back to our local pediatric community.  Our organization has continued to thrive since that time.  We have made the local pediatric community the envy of other specialties as we continue to work TOGETHER to improve the health and well being of the children of Northwest Louisiana.  Our local pediatricians, pediatric specialists and pediatric allied health professionals truly know what it means to be a TEAM!  We have been honored multiple times as the Louisiana Pediatric Society of the Year.  We most recently created a school excuse for the COVID-19 pandemic that has been picked up to be used statewide.
