Roundtable Discussion: State Policies and Practices to Meet the Needs of Young Children

Thursday, August 16th
1:30 pm – 3:00 pm

The first years of life have significant long-term impacts on health and well-being, and state policies and investments promoting healthy child development are important because they can yield long-term returns by improving the likelihood that children will succeed in school and later as adults. During this roundtable, participants will discuss innovative state policies and cross-sector approaches to advance early child development. Debbie Chang, Senior Vice President of Policy and Prevention at Nemours, will share information about the organization’s work on early care and education and health, including Medicaid.
