TeamPeds Talks: Conversations on Child Health Equity - Civic Engagement: How Our Nursing Voice Influences Child Health Policy

Civic Engagement: How Our Nursing Voice Influences Child Health Policy

TeamPeds Talks will spotlight Child Health Equity in our first Conversations on Child Health series. This series of recorded conversations will reflect the several key issues that make up the underlying factors in the arena of Social Determinants of Health.

A “place-based” organizing framework, reflecting key areas of social determinants of health (SDOH), was developed by Healthy People 2020. Each of these determinant areas reflects a number of key issues that make up the underlying factors in the arena of SDOH.

Each conversation episode is hosted by National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Executive Board President Jessica Peck, DNP, APRN, CPNP-PC, CNE, CNL, FAANP.
