Child Health Summit

2015-03-09, 10:00am to 3:30pm, 1070 Partner’s Way Raleigh, NC 27606


NCIOM, in partnership with NC Child, invites you to a celebration of 20 years of progress for children's health in North Carolina!

For two decades the Child Health Report Card has been an important tool in our work to promote children's health and well-being in North Carolina. And we have made tremendous progress -- from dramatic reductions in youth smoking and teen pregnancy to a remarkable increase in the percentage of children with health insurance.

Join us at the Statewide Child Health Summit where we will discuss the impact of the North Carolina Child Health Report Card, examine program and policy innovations in child health and wellness, and identify emerging issues in child health and well-being.


WHEN: Monday, March 9th from 10 am to 3:30 pm

WHERE: Institute for Emerging Issues, Centennial Campus, NC State University, Raleigh

REGISTRATION: Free. Lunch provided and registration required. Click here to register.
