Ames Tribune Op-Ed by Charles Bruner

June 11, 2009

This editorial by Charles Bruner, CFPC’s Executive Director, was printed Tuesday, June 9th in the Ames Tribune: A System for All

The gist of the column is that children cannot be forgotten in the health reform debate and any ensuing legislation. His commentary includes these four points related to children’s healthy development:

• Establish a benefit standard for child health insurance coverage for children based upon a child’s health needs.

• Strengthen Medicaid and CHIP as the backbone public programs providing health care for children.

• Invest in child health research and child health quality improvement.

• Expand child specific clinical and population-based health prevention and promotion activities.
