Our Work

Educating Practices In the Community (EPIC)

IMPROVING CHILD HEALTH PRACTICE

CHDI recognizes pediatric primary care as a critical venue for ensuring the healthy development of children. Because of this, we have developed a comprehensive, community-based, child health provider outreach and training program.

The goal of EPIC is to improve the content and delivery of child health services by assisting providers in implementing practice changes that are supported by community and State resources.

CHDI created EPIC in collaboration with the Connecticut chapters of the American Academy of Pediatrics and Family Physicians. Connecticut Children's Medical Center's Office for Community Child Health works closely with CHDI in the development and delivery of several EPIC training modules.

EPIC offers 17 training topics to help pediatric practices across Connecticut better meet the needs of children. EPIC trainings are brief, free and offered in the comfort of the provider’s office over lunch or another convenient time.
