Event description

Description

The first few years of life are the “big bang” for development — 100 billion neurons being connected by synapses at a rate of seven hundred per second. And when a child lacks an engaging, loving environment, “toxic” experiences actually have the power to rewire her brain, with consequences that can last a lifetime. What does this mean for your pediatric practice?

Join clinicians, educators, researchers, public health professionals at our statewide Open Forum to explore the science, its implementation and how children can fare better in Wisconsin. Aspirational, practical – this event is open to all who recognize the value of investing in our youngest citizens.


Wednesday, October 2nd, 6:30pm – 8:00pm

Screening and panel discussion around the compelling film “No Small Matter,” which explores children’s brains in early childhood and how to push their needs to the top of our social agenda.

REGISTER separately for this community-wide event


Thursday, October 3nd, 8:30am – 5:00pm

  • Addressing vaccine hesitancy
  • Developmental screening and surveillance

  • Home visiting programs
  • Infant and early childhood mental and behavioral health

Note: We look forward to welcoming the Governor and understand the demands of his position may require scheduling changes on the day of the event.
