Cooperative Agreement Announcement - HRSA Maternal Child Health Bureau (MCHB) -  We are pleased to announce that the AAP received a 3-year cooperative agreement to establish a Coordinating Center for Access to Services for Children and Youths with Epilepsy.  The goals of the Coordinating Center: (1) help state and regional epilepsy programs implement a community-based system of services for children and youths with epilepsy (CYE), particularly those residing in rural and medically underserved areas, (2) promote a collaborative team-based model of care for CYE; (3) promote the integration of epilepsy clinical guidelines and/or evidence-based or evidence-informed practices into primary care settings; (4) support efforts for building knowledge and skills of CYE and their families to partner in decision making and care management; and (5) support public health and primary care collaboration for improved data sharing and community engagement around epilepsy.

The Section participated in a collaborative study on headaches in children with the American Academy of Family Practice, the American Academy of Neurology and WellPoint/HealthCore, see published study findings, Opioid Use Among Adolescent Youths Treated for Headaches, in the Journal of Adolescent Health.
