The Influence of Prenatal to Age 3 – Utilizing a Multisectoral Approach to Achieve Positive Maternal and Child Health Outcomes
Experiences during the earliest stage of development, pre-natal to age three, can have lifelong effects on intellectual, emotional, and social functioning. The public and private health sectors are key partners during this life stage; they embrace programs and services that provide family support and engagement, and early care and education.
During this webinar, we will discuss: 1) how federal and state programs, early childhood systems building, and targeted interventions within the health and public-health systems during the prenatal, postpartum, and early childhood periods support families; 2) how effective health interventions during each of these periods buffer children against adverse childhood experiences, and 3) opportunities to link, coordinate, and advance the well-being of families and children across all ECE systems.
