Dear RPA Families:
With a heavy heart, I announce my departure from Raleigh Pediatrics at the end of July. For 18 years I have been blessed to partner with you to care for your family. I have enjoyed watching your children grow and watching you, as parents, gain confidence in your relationships with your children. We have laughed and cried together, shared stories of victories and defeats. Each of you has left an imprint on my heart that I will never forget. I am excited, however, about the future.
My family has been led in a new direction with my husband accepting a role in Charlotte, NC. I have decided to pursue one of my passions as Medical Director specializing in vaccines for Merck. Even though I won’t be taking care of patients every day, I hope to continue keeping our children healthy through vaccine education and promotion. I wish all of you my best and thank you for placing your trust in me and granting me the privilege of caring for your children.
Nicole F. Parkerson, MD, FAAP
