Educating Practices in the Community (EPIC)

Educating Practices in the Community (EPIC) is a signature program of the Child Health and Development Institute (CHDI), designed to inform pediatricians and their staff about critical children’s health issues within the comfort of their own offices. Connecticut Children’s Medical Center works closely with CHDI to assist its success in ensuring that all children in Connecticut have access to and benefit from a comprehensive, effective, community-based health and mental health care system. Together with other collaborators of CHDI, we work to advance sustainable improvements in primary and preventive health and mental health care practices for all Connecticut children.

In effort to stimulate such sustainable improvements, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center works closely with CHDI in the development of a number of EPIC training modules.
