The Michigan Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Michigan Council for Maternal and Child Health, University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, and the School-Community Health Alliance of Michigan are bringing together important aspects of child health including obesity, oral health, infant mortality, immunizations, and mental health. Incorporating all of these child health issues into one complete online website; the hope is that Michigan’s pediatricians and policymakers can come together and create the best and most effective policies to increase children’s health and well-being in Michigan.

Every pediatrician seeing children in foster care should know their local county DHS Health Liaison Officer’s (HLO) contact information because these professionals are the key to important patient health information. Please locate your local HLO here. HLOs function as the liaison between foster care staff and Medicaid Health Plans to ensure appropriate medical coverage, and that physical, developmental, and mental health services for foster children is obtained.
