CHDI Discusses Health Care Reform on For the People Radio

CHDI's Vice President for Health Initiatives Lisa Honigfeld sat down with John Voket on the radio show For the People to discuss how health reform in Connecticut can further children's health. CHDI is helping broaden the health reform conversation to go beyond strategies for efficiently managing expensive chronic diseases in adulthood (diabetes, heart disease) to keeping children healthy early in life, with life long implications. Supporting pediatric primary care providers' role in health promotion, prevention, and connection of children and families with community services can improve outcomes, prevent many chronic illnesses, and lower health care costs over the long term. 

Listen to Lisa discuss how CHDI's work is ensuring that pediatricians can effectively promote health, mitigate disparities, and support communities to help children in Connecticut.
