Event description
As our region prepares for the 2020 Census, join us for our first lecture of the series: “The Threat of the Undercount of Young Children".

About this Event

The Child Health Advocacy Institute (CHAI) Government Affairs and Child Health Data Lab departments present Data & Decisions: The Impact of Public Policy. Data & Decisions: The Impact of Public Policy will feature leading academics and experts who can demonstrate how we can better inform public policy decisions through advocacy. The lectures will provide a unique opportunity to connect with leaders in research, advocacy, public policy, and data. These lectures will be followed by a brief question and answer period.

As our region prepares for the 2020 Census, join us for our first lecture of the series: “The Threat of the Undercount of Young Children: Why Counting Children in the 2020 US Census Matters?” presented by Dr. William O’Hare, a national census expert for the Count All Kids Committee. Young children are missed in the Census more than any other age group and the impact can be devastating to communities. In fact, the 2010 Census undercounted more than 10% of all children under age 5 in the United States. Dr. O’Hare will discuss the critical impact of this undercount on funding for educational and social programs that will help children succeed. This presentation will also focus on the strategies we can implement as advocates for children and families.

Please join us on Tuesday, November 12th from 8:00-9:00am at Children’s National Hospital’s Auditorium.
