Project LAUNCH Child Wellness Summit

March 29 @ 8:30 am - 4:15 pm EDT

Project LAUNCH promotes the wellness of young children ages birth to 8 by addressing every aspect of their development (physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral). The 2019 Child Wellness Summit will include a keynote presentation by Terri McFadden M.D. who currently serves as the Medical Director for Reach Out and Read and the Georgia Chapter President of the American Academy of Pediatrics. We have identified presentations to capture our child wellness theme, Helping Children Soar: Building Blocks for Success, by demonstrating promising practices in mental health, literacy, language development, family engagement and early childhood best practices. Vendors will have an opportunity to share their services throughout the day. Lunch will be provided.
