Health, Equity and Young Children: Pediatric Roles

This presentation by CFPC executive director Charles Bruner outlines opportunities for pediatric providers to support health and equity among young children. Children ages 0-5 are most diverse age segment of society and are the most likely to live in poverty. Huge health and other disparities exist by race and ethnicity – by income, by multiple measures of child well-being, and by place. Health providers play a critical role in the lives of young children -- 91 percent have a well-child visit and 55 percent receive health coverage under Medicaid/CHIP.
