Building Bright Futures: A Policy Summit on Supporting Healthy Moms, Babies, and Child Development
12/06/2017 - 12/06/2017
The first few years of a child’s life are a time of incredible potential. Great things happen for that child and her community – for decades to come – when parents and young kids have the support of policymakers, health professionals, early childhood educators, and community organizations. When that support lags, bright futures grow dimmer.
To ensure a brighter future for Texas kids and communities, this daylong summit will explore emerging challenges and innovative, effective ways to support maternal health, postpartum care, infant health, and early childhood development. Expert panelists will share the latest evidence on what’s off track, what works, policies ripe for change, and innovative opportunities to give Texas children the best possible chance for a bright future.
The discussion topics are designed to interest health practitioners, early educators, policy leaders, philanthropists, business leaders, and other Texans who advocate for strong early childhood systems.
