For our November CHAT event, we will be partnering with the Urban Research and Outreach-Engagement Center, the University of Minnesota School of Public Health’s Health Equity Work Group and Center for Leadership Education in Maternal and Child Public Health; and the University of Minnesota Medical School’s Program in Health Disparities Research.

Please join us at 5:30pm Tuesday, November 10th, along with policy makers, practitioners and early childhood education experts and advocates for a UROC Critical Conversation on how a strong start for all Minnesota children can lead to a healthier, prosperous and more equitable state. The interactive event will feature a screening of episode two of the new documentary series The Raising of America: Early Childhood and the Future of Our Nation, airing nationwide on public television stations this fall.

Afterward, University of Minnesota researchers and state policy makers will lead a discussion on the wide range of quality in child development services and the role government should play in setting standards and ensuring access for all. Comments and ideas from the conversation will be submitted to Governor Dayton’s Children’s Cabinet.
