affan420The Pediatric Innovation Center (PIC) was developed by Dr. Ashraf Affan, M.D., President and Founder of "Angel Kids Pediatrics" in Jacksonville, Florida. Dr. Affan has grown his small practice with a single provider into one of the largest and most prosperous pediatric practices in Northeast Florida. His practice offers six locations that are open seven days a week with twenty-two providers comprised of Pediatricians, Mid-Levels and Public Health Professionals. With a patient population of greater than 20,000, Dr. Affan has consistently demonstrated excellent quality improvement and cost reduction across the board.

Dr. Affan has been practicing medicine for over 25 years, he completed his pediatric residency at the Nassau County Medical Center in New York where he received the Beth Seaton award for Resident of the year in 2001, and served as the Chief Resident in 2002. He has been serving children in his home state of Florida for the majority of those years. However, his dedication to pediatrics did not stop in Florida but continued around the world.

Beyond his private practice, he has conducted substantial research in the field and has published several papers examining the benefits of breastfeeding with both the American Academy of Pediatrics and the International Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine.
