Infants born prematurely have a greater likelihood of experiencing complications and health issues. One such issue is early-onset sepsis (EOS)—a serious and potentially fatal infection of the blood and/or cerebrospinal fluid occurring within the first three days after birth. Delivery characteristics – including mode of delivery, presence of labor, and rupture of membranes (ROM) duration prior to delivery – are all thought to contribute to EOS risk. However, a framework was lacking to understand the association of these combinations of delivery characteristics with EOS incidence in preterm…
This year the 2023 AAP National Conference & Exhibition will take place in Washington, D.C., from October 20 - 24, 2023. It is a great opportunity for pediatricians and other health professionals from around the world to meet and learn from each other.
Intro The Childhood Opportunity Index (COI) is a tool that relatively weights 29 neighborhood attributes and synthesizes them into a measure that predicts health and economic outcomes. COI has been recognized as useful for estimating and predicting other health outcomes. Our clinical researchers noticed overlapping clinical measures and parallels to other COI associations, and they suspected that the COI might also be representative of pediatric primary care outcomes related to preventive care access and child well-being.
Smoking is the leading cause of preventable disease, disability, and death in the US. (It has been for decades.) And, tobacco use is still far too common across all age groups, with 2022 data showing a whopping 16.5% of high school students reporting current use.

For many people, health does not play a role when moving to a new location.
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted much of life as we knew it. Adolescents may have been especially impacted, as social distancing forced a new way of virtual learning for many, and declines in the economy and job instability have impacted many families.
