Minnesota Public Health Association
Since 1907, MPHA has been dedicated to creating a healthier Minnesota through effective public health practice and engaged citizens.
Public health and community leaders explored topics in the health and development of our children ages 0‐4.
All forums were held at the New Brighton Community Center (400 10th St. NW, New Brighton). Each forum began promptly at 7:30 am and concludes at 9:00 am. Breakfast and on‐site registration began at 7:00 am.
Panelists and forum participants explored concerns related to immunizations, newborn screening and infant mortality.
From topics related to the health focus of well‐child visits to our current approaches to daycare and school readiness, panelists and forum participants explored health during early childhood.
At this third forum panelists and participants discussed issues related to environmental concerns that affect the health of children ages 0‐4—toys, food, water, and chemicals.
The last forum explored safety and well‐being concerns. What progress have we made in preventing and protecting young children from physical and mental abuse, in limiting exposure to guns in the home, and in addressing concerns about exposure to prescription drugs?
