TeamPeds Talks: Conversations on Child Health Equity - Quality of Housing

Home Visits to Improve Asthma Outcomes

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 Quality of Housing.

Dr. Peck is joined by Gayle N. Higgins, MSN, PNP-BC, AE-C. Gayle has been a pediatric nurse for over 30 years and a PNP for 17 years. She has worked in sub-specialty practice (Pulmonology), and then started an asthma clinic within the primary care clinic. The institution where Gayle worked was in a very poor area and was designated the number two food hungriest congressional district in the nation. Dealing with issues other than medical issues was part of daily practice. Gayle has presented multiple times at conferences about her asthma clinic and what needs to be done to care for a child with asthma.
