Resources on School-Based Health Centers, Classifying Infant Deaths, Bright Futures

School-Based Health Centers Serve a Critical Role in Many CommunitiesHRSA Disclaimer

Children and teens who are healthy do better in school, leading more communities to establish school-based health centers for comprehensive care, such as help with chronic conditions like asthma, routine immunizations, or a mental health check. The AAP recommends families take advantage of school-based health centers where they are offered.

Uniformity in Classifying Unexpected, Unexplained Infant DeathsHRSA Disclaimer

When an infant dies, it is important for medical and forensic professionals to use consistent terminology to describe and classify infant death. The AAP and National Association of Medical Examiners agree on the need for a shared set of terms to define cases historically called SIDS.

Disability, Health Equity, and COVID-19HRSA Disclaimer

People with disabilities have been uniquely impacted by the pandemic as they face greater risk of poor health outcomes, reduced access to routine services and care, and adverse social outcomes. This infographic highlights the COVID-related challenges facing the disability community as well as clear steps that can be taken to support the health and well-being of this community.

Racial Bias in Health Care Artificial IntelligenceHRSA Disclaimer

AI tools such as algorithms are increasingly being used to determine who gets health care. These tools can unintentionally increase the impact of existing racial biases in medicine through the explicit use of race to predict outcomes and risk. This infographic highlights strategies to address bias in algorithms and the potential for AI to support health equity.
