Justice from the Start – Supporting Prenatal-to-Three with Federal Relief Funds: Health

October 28 2021
3:00pm

This webinar is the final webinar in the three-part series on funding prenatal-to-three with federal relief funds.

The pandemic has exposed and deepened long-standing health inequities by race, ethnicity and income, with alarming implications for the health of birthing people and their young children. Federal relief funds in the American Rescue Plan Act represent significant, unprecedented funding that provides champions with an opportunity to advance health equity and justice from the start in the prenatal-to-three period.

Join us for an energetic health session on Thursday, October 28 featuring leaders who will address the pressing environmental health issue of lead; maternal health care coverage; building the capacity of pediatricians for early childhood mental health diagnosis and referral; creative equity strategies within Part C Early Intervention; and implicit bias training for home visitors and pediatric providers.

Karen Howard, BUILD Initiative Consultant, will moderate this group of energetic leaders:

  • Jeannine Galloway, MPH, Maternal and Child Health Director, Georgia Department of Public Health (regarding equity in Part C Early Intervention and implicit bias for home visitors and pediatric providers)
  • Vikki Crouse, Policy Analyst, NC Child (regarding the environmental and health issue of lead)
  • Stephanie Rubin, CEO, Texans Care for Children (regarding maternal health coverage and support for pediatric mental health diagnosis and referrals)
