This curriculum developed in collaboration with Children's Hospital Boston, Harvard Medical School, and Bright Futures, will be of interest to anyone who cares for pediatric aged children, including all maternal and child health professionals, such as pediatricians, nurses, public health specialists, nurse practitioners, physicians' assistants, social workers, dentists, and medical educators.
