This online toolkit was created by our pediatric health care providers to provide resources and information that can be used to promote the health and well-being of children of all ages. It includes content for clinicians, parents, caregivers, teachers, and children related to mental health, COVID-19, childcare, and more.

Immigrant Child Health Toolkit

The Immigrant Child Health Toolkit was created by the members of the Immigrant Child Health Committee of the DC Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. It is intended for use by medical providers caring for recently arrived immigrant children in their practice. We hope that this toolkit will be a valuable resource both during and around a patient’s medical visit.
