TeamPeds Talks: Conversations on Child Health Equity - Early Childhood Education and Development

Mitigating Toxic Stress in Infants and Toddlers 

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.

This conversation episode is related to Education, and addresses Early Childhood Education and Development.

Dr. Peck is joined by Michelle A. Beauchesne, DNSc, RN, CPNP, FAAN, FNAP, FAANP. Dr. Beauchesne, now Professor Emeritus, until recently was the Director of the DNP Program and Pediatric NP Programs at Northeastern University in Boston.

Dr. Beauchesne's research foci are child development and advanced practice nursing. Michelle, an expert PNP in the care of children and families with neurodevelopmental disabilities, is a Distinguished Practitioner in the National Academy of Practice, a Fellow in the American Academy of Nursing and a Fellow in the American Association of Nurse Practitioners. In 2006, Michelle was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from Bucks New University in England, UK for her career achievements, particularly fostering international research and innovative teaching modalities. Michelle maintains a national/international role as a consultant in leadership and education.
