About Us

Ask The Paediatricians Foundation started as an online Facebook Group on the 20th July 2015 by Dr. Gbemisola Boyede, Consultant Paediatrician at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idiaraba Lagos. At the same time, she started a Blog for posting great articles on topical issues of child health known as the Ask The Paediatricians Blog especially for those not on Facebook.
