Suzanne BronheimAbout Our Speaker

Suzanne M. Bronheim, Ph.D., is Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics and a Senior Policy Analyst within the Georgetown University Center for Child and Human Development (GUCCHD). As faculty within the National Center for Cultural Competence (NCCC), she has leveraged her 30-year career to advance MCH issues of cultural competence, family-centered care, CYSHCN, and systems development. 

Currently, Dr. Bronheim helps to lead the National Partnership to Promote Safe Sleep; she previously served as the Director of the Sudden Unexpected Infant and Child Death and Pregnancy Loss Project within the NCCC for 15 years

As a pediatric psychologist, she was director of the learning disabilities/neuropsychology service at Georgetown for twenty years, was co-director of the Tourette Syndrome Clinic at Georgetown, provided evaluation and consultation for adults with developmental disabilities, and served as the psychologist in the Pediatric Pulmonary Center, the Cystic Fibrosis Center and the renal dialysis and transplant team at Georgetown University Hospital. For over ten years, she coordinated Communities Can!—a national network of communities dedicated to using collaborative, systems integration strategies to support and serve all children and families, including those with or at risk for special health care needs.

Dr. Bronheim served as PI for a MCHB-funded research project to address racial and ethnic disparities in access to information by families of children with special health care needs and is part of research teams conducting validations studies on measures of provider cultural and linguistic competence and family-centered care.  She has provided training and technical assistance related to cultural and linguistic competence to state Title V and other public health programs, health and mental health care systems, non-profit organizations, health care providers, and family advocacy and support organizations. She has also developed resources on the role of cultural and linguistic competence in infant mortality disparities, approaches to implementing cultural and linguistic competence in health promotion, and providing culturally and linguistically competent services and supports to families.

Tell us how you will use what you have learned:

  • I like this format even better than your summary webinars from 5-Minute MCH. Very direct and to the point. No time for fluff. This might be the best no-nonsense review I've seen so far on a tricky topic. Kudos.
  • A lot crammed into a short time -- even at 6 and a half minutes it felt like a blink of the eye.
  • Thanks for choosing my question! You really do listen and respond. I will push my students to ask questions as well.
  • Gearing up for another year when we'll be struggling against so much, it's nice to have a weekly email in my inbox that I actually want to read and pass on.

Next steps and thoughts to consider for the field:

  • Where are we in the process of having primary care and public health combine their data?
  • I feel it would be helpful to learn in detail how health data is collected from states.
  • How can we demand access to better community-wide data? What are the best steps to do this?
  • How could individuals get involved in this particular issue? How can we help facilitate this type of communication to begin the process of providing data across settings so that health care services are better geared towards the individual and more comprehensive?
  • It would be great to get more background about how this information is collected/what agencies are responsible.
  • While I only perused the website for a short amount of time, the amount of information provided, and potentially accessible, seems vast. It would be interesting to be on the flip side of things, to see this as a parent or patient, rather than a clinician.
  • With the self-reflection strategy, is there an assessment used to for the organization to assess if it is equipped to help the employees improve where needed?
  • Who gets to decide about making changes to data collection methods and public health information tracked?
