Awarded the Promising Practices Award for Promoting Adolescents' Strengths (2010)
The Vermont Youth Health Improvement Initiative, with leadership from Paula Duncan, MD, FAAP; Barbara Frankowski, MD, FAAP; Breena Holmes, MD; and Eliot Nelson, MD have helped practitioners from throughout Vermont to make office-based systems changes promoting comprehensive screening and counseling for health behavior risks and developmental tasks or strengths. Over 66 practices with high volumes of adolescent patients have worked with the project, including participation in a 1-hour office-based educational session focused on using a strength-based approach to address a practice selected risk factor.
