Check out the Blueprint for Children

NAPNAP highly encourages all members and others involved in child and family health to review the American Academy for Pediatrics’ Blueprint for Children: How the Next President Can Build a Foundation for a Healthy Future which contains specific goals and policy recommendations for the federal government to align its activities to promote healthy children, support secure families, build strong communities, and ensure that the United States is a leading nation for children.

We are pleased to have had the opportunity to thoroughly review the document in advance and provide substantive recommendations that were implemented prior to the Blueprint’s publication. NAPNAP President Laura Searcy, MN, APRN, PPCNP-BC and Executive Director Cate Brennan, MBA, CAE attended the AAP’s launch event in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 19. The association also participated in social media promotion of the Blueprint.
