This power-packed conference will also showcase concurrent stimulating symposia led by local leaders with diverse expertise involving children’s health and wellness, racial and culturally informed education, immigrant and refugee support, community-oriented policing, and reducing barriers to care and resources. These discussions are tailored to local behavioral health and medical providers, educators and community organizations. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to network with representatives from a cross sector of child-serving organizations.
