    Together for Tomorrow: Protecting Arizona's Children

    Preconception Health Injury Prevention | Behavioral Health

    Desert Willow Conference Center | April 11, 2018

    Keeping children healthy and safe requires collaborative efforts to identify and address the risk factors that jeopardize their well-being. Sadly, the lives of far too many children are cut short due to preventable factors that are completely out of their control. As Arizona strives to create a brighter future for today’s children, it’s important that we find ways to assure children a healthy path to success from the start. Doing so will require professionals, the public and policy makers to build on each other’s strengths, prioritize common areas of opportunity and tackle the issues posing greatest threat to our youth.

    Together for Tomorrow: Protecting Arizona’s Children will explore opportunities for Arizona to prevent child mortality. We’ll showcase interventions and best practices currently underway, and spark further dialogue about programs and policies that provide nurturing conditions in which children can thrive. The day will focus on 3 core areas that are essential to children’s well-being: preconception health, injury prevention, and mental health.    

    We’ll hear from experts and practitioners from across Arizona about the key interventions that they’ve implemented in the key areas that drive mortality outcomes: preconception health (preventing premature birth); injury prevention (including car accidents, unsafe sleep, drowning and child welfare); and behavioral health (mental illness, substance abuse and suicide).

    We’ll close with a call-to- action to encourage policy makers to implement evidence-based recommendations to reduce childhood deaths. Participants will learn how to ensure their voices are heard by policymakers at all levels, as well as practical actions individuals and organizations can take to influence early childhood policy.
