​​Program to Enhance the Health & Development of Infants and Children (PEHD​IC)

​​

In summer 2009, the AAP was awarded PEHDIC—a 5-year cooperative agreement with the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). PEHDIC activities include: health promotion and disease prevention for newborns and infants; child development and health; early hearing detection and intervention; early identification of children with developmental disabilities; prevention of secondary conditions in children with disabilities; health promotion for children with disabilities; and transition to adult life.​​​

The goals of the PEHDIC are to link the physician community at the national, state, and local levels to activities that support the health and development of children.​
