Pediatrician, Mother, Author


Dr. Kelly Fradin (@AdviceIGiveMyFriends) is a pediatrician, mother of two, and child advocate based in New York City. She was inspired to become a doctor because of her experience surviving childhood cancer. A graduate of Harvard College and Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, she has dedicated her career to caring for children with complex medical conditions in many situations including academic clinics, private practice, inpatient units and schools.

She serves as an expert advisor for many companies seeking to reach parents and children including Johnson & Johnson, Zarbees, Lalo, and Coterie.

In addition to her media work, Dr. Fradin directs the pediatric programs at the Atria in NYC.
