Advocating for Advocacy: Addressing Challenges and Building Community Partnerships
April 6 - 7, 2021
Join us for a two-day virtual symposium for pediatricians and other child health experts to collaborate and learn how to best advocate for children in your community. This event will feature a wide variety of pediatric health experts and community partners speaking about health disparities and challenges faced by children and families in the Central Valley. They will share successful strategies for advocating for our kids, and provide guidance for meaningful community partnership.
This virtual event will focus specifically on the following topics:
- The role of advocacy in enhancing the health of children and the responsibility of pediatricians to engage in advocacy activities
- Identifying and developing partnerships with community-based organizations especially when time is limited and geographic catchment areas are large
- Understanding of the legislative process and the opportunities with respect to child health
