Dr. Zuckerbrot Lead Author on Depression-Screening Guidelines

Dr. Rachel Zuckerbrot is the lead author on new guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics for universal screenings for depression. She was interviewed on NPR about these new guidelines. "What we're endorsing is that everyone, 12 and up, be screened ... at least once a year," says Dr. Zuckerbrot. The screening could be done during a well-visit, a sports physical, or during another office visit.
