Dr. Bird's greatest joy is seeing the children of St. Lucia thrive and prosper
"World Pediatric Project has changed the face of children's medical care for children and families in St. Lucia. Parents and children no longer have to be afraid. Something can now be done about it - with no cost to the family."
Kyle's passion is running and he proudly displays his first place medals from a recent competition.
"It's like they become your own children."
Dr. Jackie Bird, St. Lucia Pediatrician
