Bright Futures is a national health promotion and prevention initiative led by the American Academy of Pediatrics and supported, in part, by the Health Resources and Services Administration. The Bright Futures Guidelines provide theory-based and evidence-driven guidance for all preventive care screenings and health supervision visits. Bright Futures content can be incorporated into many public health programs such as home visiting, child care, school-based health clinics, and others.

The Bright Futures webpage includes materials and tools for health care professionals in private and public health settings, parents and families, and community members (e.g., coaches, educators, child care professionals). Key materials include guidelines for health supervision of infants, children, and adolescents; a toolkit for health care professionals to meet the needs of their practices; and a periodicity schedule of screenings and assessments recommended at each well-child visit from infancy through adolescence. The Bright Futures webpage also includes information about how Bright Futures materials and resources are used in states and communities throughout the United States.
