CHILDREN’S HEALTH IMPACT SUMMIT
NATIONAL CHILD HEALTH DAY 2014 Addressing Health Inequities to Improve our Children’s Academic Success The Alignment Nashville Children’s Health Impact Summit at Lentz Public Health Center will kick off a campaign to address seven educationally-relevant health inequities:
•Vision •Asthma •Teen Pregnancy •Aggression/Violence •Physical Activity •Breakfast •Inattention/Hyperactivity
The Alignment Nashville Children’s Health Teams will bring a concerted focus to each of these seven areas in the coming months. We need additional community stakeholders with expertise in these areas and a vested interested in the children of Nashville to join us in addressing these health inequities. This half-day event will include an expert panel discussion around health inequities and their impact on student success, specifically physical activity and breakfast. We’ll also spend time working in smaller groups to address specific community needs in each of these seven areas and jump start this important work!
