AAP Recognizes Child Health Day on October 5th

October 4, 2009

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) will honor and recognize Child Health Day this year by focusing on an issue close to its heart, and that of all the children, families and professionals it serves--the family-centered "medical home."  The Academy will celebrate by increasing awareness and understanding of what a "medical home" is and why every child deserves one.  

The AAP has activities planned and materials available to celebrate why "Every Child Deserves a Medical Home".  Help spread this important message by visiting The National Center for Medical Home Implementation Web site: http://www.medicalhomeinfo.org/about/ChildHealthDay2009.html where you will find downloadable materials for parents, providers and others plus other useful information.

Child Health Day activities are being coordinated jointly by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the National Center for Medical Home Implementation, a program of the AAP funded by a cooperative agreement with HRSA's Maternal and Child Health Bureau.
