Gabe Moreno (former ArizonaLEND trainee) co-authored the aritcle, Caretaker Awareness of Health Care Provided Developmental Screenings: Increases from 2007 to 2012. The article states that, "despite growth, there is still a need to increase developmental screening efforts in many states." The Association of Schools & Programs of Public Health (ASPPH) did a nice write-up on the article. Congratulations, Gabe!
