Wednesday, September 11, 2019

Adverse childhood experiences harm a child's ability to grow, thrive, and learn. Rather than treating the symptoms, how can we get to the root causes of childhood toxic stress?
In this interactive conversation, our host Shawn Petty and special guest Dr. Dayna Long will put the spotlight on health disparities. Children with unmet basic needs like food and housing are at a disadvantage when it comes to health outcomes; how can we engage the community and connect these children and families with the resources they need to thrive?
