Pediatricians and Anti-Poverty Organizations: Building Bridges

Posted by Spotlight on Poverty and Opportunity on June 13, 2016

June 20 Webinar — Pediatricians and Anti-Poverty Organizations: Building Bridges

The American Academy of Pediatrics’ (AAP) recent policy statement on child poverty encourages pediatricians to tackle “poverty-related disorders” through health screenings and interventions as well as address the “toxic effects of poverty” through program and policy advocacy. Spotlight will host a national webinar featuring prominent AAP voices and leaders of state and local anti-poverty efforts to discuss the possible connections between doctors and advocates. Speakers include Benard Dreyer, president of AAP; Gena Lewis, pediatric attending at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital; Taifa Smith Butler, executive director of the Budget and Policy Institute; and Eva Gladstein, deputy managing director for health and human services in Philadelphia. The webinar will be held from 3-4 p.m. EDT.
