Early care and education (ECE) programs can support families' access to needed medical care. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends children under 24 months maintain their Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic, and Treatment (EPSDT) immunization schedule to prevent the breakout of communicable diseases. Many pediatricians are conducting well-child visits through telehealth appointments. However, families may be struggling to access these services. Join former AAP president, Colleen Kraft, MD, FAAP, for a discussion on how ECE providers can support families' medical care during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

Topics for the webinar include:

  • Recommendations from AAP on maintaining immunizations during COVID-19
  • Strategies for using telehealth services
  • Supporting well-child visits once ECE programs reopen
