Webinar – Ensuring Good Health and Development for North Carolina Babies and Toddlers
Children’s development during the first three years of life is strongly impacted by their health. Experiences during this time are hardwired into their brains and bodies, forming the foundation for all subsequent development.
NCECF and Think Babies™ NC shared where North Carolina is on specific state-level policies that can support young children’s physical health, developmental screening and social-emotional health. The webinar:
- Recapped the NC Early Childhood Summit, which was hosted by the NC Department of Health and Human Services on Feb. 27 to release the Early Childhood Action Plan
- Outlined findings from an assessment of NC’s state-level health policies for babies and toddlers.
- Caught up with Rob Thompson of NC Child about their work on closing the coverage gap for uninsured adults.
- Heard from Tom Vitaglione of NC Child and Beth Messersmith of MomsRising about their work to support workplace pregnancy accommodations.
