Wan Quan (Chinese: 萬全; 1495–1585), also known as Wan Mizhai (Chinese: 萬密齋), was a Ming dynasty pediatrician. He was the third in his family to practice medicine. He advocated that children be frequently exposed to sunlight and fresh air and trained to resist cold. He also believed that frightening a child was harmful to him or her, as was overfeeding or overmedicating.[1]
