The Role of Primary Care Clinicians in the First 1,000 Days

The first few years of life are the “big bang” for development — 100 billion neurons being connected by synapses at a rate of seven hundred per second. And when a child lacks an engaging, loving environment, “toxic” experiences actually have the power to rewire her brain, with consequences that can last a lifetime. What does this mean for your practice?

Join clinicians, educators, researchers, public health professionals at our statewide Open Forum to explore the science, its implementation and how children can fare better in Wisconsin. Aspirational, practical – this event is open to all who recognize the value of investing in our youngest citizens.

• Addressing vaccine hesitancy

• Developmental screening and surveillance

• Early literacy and the Reach Out and Read Program

• Home visiting programs

• Infant and early childhood mental and behavioral health

Both events are open to all and will feature speakers and attendees from pediatrics and other primary care providers, statewide public health advocates and others dedicated to the quality of care for children and families in Wisconsin.

This event presented by the Wisconsin Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics
