The Bright Futures National Center has launched their newly redesigned and reorganized web site, and it’s a beauty! Along with the new look, they have added animated video, family-friendly resources, and tips and tools created to support implementation of Bright Futures into clinical practice, state or community health program.
Bright Futures is a national health promotion and prevention initiative, led by the American Academy of Pediatrics and supported by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration. The Bright Futures Guidelines provide theory-based and evidence-driven guidance for all preventive care screenings and well-child visits. Bright Futures content can be incorporated into many public health programs such as home visiting, child care, school-based health clinics, and many others. Materials developed especially for families are also available.
