Child looking back

2020 Year In Review

In the final weeks of 2020, we’re looking back at all we’ve accomplished together. In a year filled with growing challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, endless health care workers, pediatricians, community health workers, caregivers, and others have sacrificed to minimize the impact this crisis brings to our country’s children. As we look toward 2021, we’re sharing a run-down of our most popular resources that helped guide you throughout the year, including recordings to six NICHQ webinars, dozens of articles and stories, and resource guides with topics on reducing preterm birth, fatherhood involvement, safe infant sleep, and so much more!  

Equity is a Priority

Throughout this year, it has become clearer to many that the hard truth of the racism that shaped our nation requires us all—now, today—to acknowledge and address its impact in our health care systems and in ourselves. As we begin a new year on our journey toward equity, we're sharing a collection of NICHQ articles and webinars that your community found most valuable in their equity journeys.

Staying Resilient During the Pandemic
