Webinar: Childhood Adversity—Data to Help Advocate for Change

Date: Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Time: 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. PT

Childhood adversity, such as child abuse and exposure to violence and poverty, can have negative long-term impacts on health and well being. In this webinar, our panelists will discuss how to describe the burden of childhood adversity in your community, how to frame your message most effectively, and how to engage and mobilize your community to address the roots and effects of childhood adversity.

Panelists will also lead participants on a virtual tour of Kidsdata’s Childhood Adversity and Resilience data, research, and policy recommendations.
