New York Chapter 1 has been selected as one of five chapters to receive a Teen Safe Driving Grant supported by The Allstate Foundation.   The Chapter, under the direction of Gale Burstein MD and Colleen Mattimore MD, will  educate pediatricians, residents, nurse practitioners and other health professionals on strategies to counsel teens and their parents on safe practices for teen driving. Our focus will be parents as the champions for safe driving and our educational plan will include the parent and family as well as the teen driver.   Resources will be available soon to assist pediatricians and families as they consider safe teen driving issues, especially distracted driving.
