Child Trends’ mission is to improve the lives of children and youth and, in that spirit, we are launching a new effort to provide state policymakers with the latest information and research-based tools related to creating safe and healthy schools. We are hosting two webinars during which our experts will share how you can access research to support your work addressing the physical, social, emotional, and mental health needs of students.

This effort, tailored to meet the needs of state health and education agencies, legislators, and state board of education members, includes:

  • A healthy schools policy helpdesk where officials can ask questions regarding school safety, physical and mental health supports, nutrition, school discipline policy, employee wellness, and other topics.
  • An upcoming data visualization tool that examines the relationship between educational opportunity and life expectancy, illustrating one of the most powerful social determinants of health. This tool will be designed to help communicate the importance of investments in education as a strategy for promoting health.

We’ve scheduled two webinar dates and times to accommodate busy schedules. Please register for the time most convenient for you.

Tuesday, December 3, 2019, 1 p.m. EST

or

Wednesday December 4, 2019, 4 p.m. EST
