Hand-Foot-and-Mouth Disease

Hand-foot-and-mouth disease is a viral infection most often seen in infants and children younger than 10 years. It is most commonly caused by coxsackievirus A16. Coxsackieviruses are one type of enterovirus. Despite the similarity in names, hand-foot-and-mouth disease is a completely different infection than foot-and-mouth disease, which occurs only in animals and is caused by another type of virus.

Dr. Adrian Furman

 Meet Our New Pediatrician, Dr. Furman!

Dr. Adrian Furman identifies as an Alaskan Native pediatrician from Bristol Bay. He was raised in his mother’s ancestral village of Egegik and was initially a commercial fisherman by trade. Adrian spent two school years in Molokai, Hawaii, in middle school, then completed his secondary education in the Wasilla school system. He completed his premedical studies at Stanford University, where he was active in the Native American community and was a supporter of the Black Student Union, El Centro Chicano and the Muslim Student Awareness Network. Adrian was also involved in an abroad program focused on public health projects in informal settlements known as townships of Cape Town, South Africa.
  Dr. Furman subsequently attended Vanderbilt Medical School, in Nashville, TN, from which he was able to contribute to health fairs for Sudanese refugees, trainee clinics for uninsured and undocumented children, electronic medical records projects in the Alaska Tribal Health System and medical missions in Guatemala and Nicaragua.  He anticipated returning to Anchorage on completion of his medical training and chose to attend a pediatric residency track focused on primary care and training in social determinants of health for urban underserved populations.
Since completion of residency, Dr. Furman has worked in Federally Qualified Healthcare Centers in Los Angeles and Glendale, California, and has most recently been employed by Boston Children’s Hospital as an emergency room pediatrician. He has been following his wife, Grace Shih, who will be joining the Anchorage medical community as a cornea and refractive surgery trained ophthalmologist.
  Dr. Furman was raised in a discrimination-free household and takes great pride in providing evidence based care for infants, children and adolescents of all races, ethnicities, faiths, gender identities and sexual orientations. In the process of his training and early practice, he has provided care for families from Armenia, Brazil, China, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Iraq, Iran, Jamaica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Nigeria, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Russia, Sudan, Syria, Uganda, Vietnam and several countries in West Africa. Dr. Furman has found particular meaning in providing care for children of families displaced by foreign conflict, including those from Latin America. Se habla español médico pediátrico.
In his spare time, Dr. Furman enjoys taking his 1+ year old daughter on nature walks and encouraging her to kick at a soccer ball. Adrian personally enjoys team sports, hiking, road and trail running, and subsistence fishing. He is excited to explore the winter sports he was rarely able to afford as a child!

Active kids are happy kids! Some kids like baseball. Some dancing. Some kids like to go on nature hikes on our beautiful, Anchorage trails. Figuring out what kind of physical activities your kids like best can be fun…and the health benefits are not too shabby either. 😉

It’s that time again! The flu vaccine is an important way to keep your kids healthy. It’s best to get your children their shots early so their bodies have time to build up immunity. Flu season starts in October, so hurry and schedule your appointment today.

Slow down there! It takes 20 minutes for your kid’s brain to tell their body that they are full. So, ask them to take their time and enjoy their food.

Figuring out your child’s unique learning style can help assure academic success. Keep your eyes and ears open for what works best for your child. Then, build on their strengths. A kid with knowledge is a kid with confidence.
