 How Wisconsin is implementing Bright Futures

Adaptation: The Wisconsin Maternal & Child Health Division has worked to build a system of integrated health promotion and prevention for children and their families. This system of programs and outrech incorporates four Bright Futures themes: child development, mental health, safety/injury prevention, and family support.

Training: Wisconsin has worked closely with the American Academy of Pediatrics to provide a series of live Webcasts. In May 2011, the Maternal & Child Health Program completed training for local public health departments. This training highlights new information obtained in each theme and how to use Bright Futures in state health programs and direct care services. ​
