February issue of Current Opinions in Pediatrics features research, recommendations

WASHINGTON, Jan. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Nemours Children's Health research and policy leaders detail the latest strategies for identifying and addressing health equity disparities among children and families in a special section on Population Health in the February edition of Current Opinion in Pediatrics. Kara Odom Walker, MD, MPH, MSHS, Executive Vice President, Chief Population Health officer; and Allison Gertel-Rosenberg, MS, Vice President, Chief Policy and Prevention Officer, both of Nemours Children's Health, describe in a joint editorial, Cross-sector opportunities to advance the health and well-being of children, how health systems working alongside community stakeholders and policymakers can create the healthiest generations of children. By addressing social determinants, health systems can promote equitable health outcomes across racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Dr. Walker and Gertel-Rosenberg write "the need to develop and invest in portfolios of approaches to improve or change the trajectory of child health and well-being require cross-sector integration and alignment. At the same time, this presents an opportunity to design a whole child approach that closes inequities in the measured outcomes to improve overall health and well being."
