CHDI's Senior Associate, Susan Macary was featured on a podcast 'For the People' produced by John Voket to discuss how pediatric primary care providers can address Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children. The podcast highlights CHDI as one of five organizations selected nationally by the American Academy of Pediatrics to develop and test innovative ways to increase the use of the AAP Clinical Practice Guideline for the Diagnosis, Evaluation, and Treatment of ADHD in Children and Adolescents in pediatric primary care. CHDI's Educating Practices in Communities (EPIC) will implement the AAP Guideline for early identification, treatment, and management of ADHD for 129 pediatric primary care providers at ten practices in Connecticut.   

The work is summarized in CHDI's Issue Brief 60The Critical Role of Pediatric Primary Care in Addressing Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.
