Child Health Equity - NAPNAP

Child Health Equity

Every Child Deserves Fair and Just Health Opportunities

While child health equity has garnered significant attention due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners has always been committed to delivering the same, high-quality, evidence-based pediatric health care to all children regardless of their socioeconomic background, race, citizenship status or sexual orientation. 

Impact of Racism on Child Health moderated by Immediate Past President Raji Koppolu and featuring Drs. Danielle Dooley and Jacqueline Douge of the American Academy of Pediatrics and two of the authors of AAP’s statement on The Impact of Racism on Child and Adolescent Health. Watch recording.

Conversations on Child Health Equity is a series of recorded conversations with NAPNAP experts and stakeholders that address key issues related to social determinants of health. Available wherever you listen to podcasts. If podcasts aren’t your thing, you can listen to the conversations on PedsCESM. Both options offer .5 contact hours of free CE per episode upon completion of the session evaluation PedsCESM.

If you complete the CE activity for all sixteen podcast episodes, you may request a certificate of completion to demonstrate that you have completed the CE requirements for all episodes in the TeamPeds Talks Conversation on Child Health Equity curriculum.
