Le Bonheur remedies issues at home, in addition to disease


Started in January 2018 through a $350,000 grant from the state, the Family Resilience Initiative trains Le Bonheur pediatricians to identify issues that are getting in the way of children’s health and well-being. “There’s been increasing research and recognition over the past few years that adverse childhood experiences, that kids may be exposed to in the household, have lifelong impacts on their health, education and on their ability to hold down a job,” said Dr. Jon McCullers, chair of the Department of Pediatrics for the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and pediatrician in chief for Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital.
