Health Care

Bright Futures for Families is a national initiative for families and communities to promote and improve the health and well-being of children of all ages. We offer resources for families based on the award winning, federally supported Bright Futures initiative, developed through the support of public health, non-profit, and corporate organizations.


Bright Futures for Families offers a variety of materials and resources developed specifically for families to complement the Bright Futures publications and materials used by health care professionals. Families want and need materials that have the same information used by their health care providers, written in a way that they can understand and easily refer back to when needed. Through the support of our public, non-profit and corporate partners we will be developing new materials. These existing and new family friendly materials:

  • Provide valuable information about child development and what to expect, from infancy through adolescence.
  • Help families form partnerships with their providers.
  • Empower families to advocate for the health care needs of their children.
  • Encourage families to help their children gradually assume responsibility for their own health care.
