Bright Futures* - A new resource for promoting health and well-being for children
The concept of Bright Futures is simple: provide appropriate health supervision and care for all children. Economic, societal, and demographic alterations to American families serve to compromise the family's ability to provide a nurturing environment for their children. These changes have brought with them different causes of morbidity and mortality among children and adolescents. Bright Futures is a system of three way collaboration: doctors, their patients under age 21, and the patient's family - all working together to optimize the delivery of health services to these young people. The goal is to prevent the "new morbidities" from happening.
* Bright Futures is sponsored in part by: Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration.
