Joliet, Illinois — Pediatricians might consider screening their young patients for symptoms of bullying during routine, preventative check-ups, said Dr. Thomas Moore, pediatrician at Provena Saint Joseph Medical Center in Joliet.
“When I did a little research I learned that bullying is more common than I thought and it can cause long-term damage,” Moore said. “Both the bullies and the victims have an increased risk of psychiatric problems down the road.”
