TeamPeds Talks: Conversations on Child Health Equity - How an Adoption Journey Led This NP to Work for Educational Justice

How an Adoption Journey Led This NP to Work for Educational Justice

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 - High School Graduation/ Enrollment in Higher Education.

Dr. Peck is joined by Mollie Mulberry. Mollie Mulberry has been a pediatric nurse practitioner for 16 years working in pediatric hematology/oncology/bone marrow transplant and now faculty at Regis University. She provides primary care at two clinics that service Medicaid, uninsured, and the indigenous population. The racial opportunity gap in my home district is a huge issue and has both short and long term impacts on my son , our community, and the children and families she serves. She has been involved with the Sims-Fayola Foundation and other community partners for the past several years trying to innovatively help address this grave issue.
