The National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) expresses our deep concern for the health and wellbeing of the children in our country at these times. As pediatric-focused advanced practice nurses, we are all too aware of the significant impact recent events have on children’s health and wellbeing. NAPNAP remains united and dedicated to advocating for all children to grow up in a world that celebrates their diversity and their safety. In our role as advocates for children, and in our mission to promote equity in child health as experts in pediatrics, we are working to create an educational series to support our communities.
TeamPeds Talk will spotlight Child Health Equity in our first Conversations on Child Health series. This series of 16 recorded conversations will reflect the several key issues that make up the underlying factors in the arena of Social Determinants of Health.

Through this series, we want to have important conversations with APRNs that are developing efforts to positively impact child health inequities, and share these conversations with the NAPNAP membership.
