The 4th edition of Bright Futures: Guidelines for Health Supervision of Infants, Children and Adolescents has been released with input from Dr. Dipesh Navsaria. Dr. Navsaria served on the Infancy Expert Panel for the new edition, and had a substantial hand in writing some of the early childhood sections, including the early literacy section. Bright Futures is a set of theory-based, evidence-driven, and systems-oriented principles, strategies, and tools that health care professionals can use to improve the health and well-being of children through culturally appropriate interventions. Bright Futures addresses the current and emerging health promotion needs of families, clinical practices, communities, health systems, and policymakers.
