In support of the Children’s Hospital Association’s 2021 Speak Now for Kids Family Advocacy Week, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center hosted a conversation on the imperative to invest early in children’s optimal health, development, and well-being. 

Dr. Melanie Berry from the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University discusses the Center’s new action guide for policymakers, which lays out a scientific analysis of why investments in young children and families can have lifelong health and learning implications.

Kimberly Martini-Carvell, the Executive Director of the Help Me Grow National Center, describes how the Help Me Grow Model both responds to the science of early childhood and brain development, and serves to support families with young children in ways that promote best possible outcomes.
