Raising Every Child

May 11, 2023

Join Family Services in our commitment to health equity. Social determinants of health have a major impact on individual health, well-being and quality of life. The effects are even more devastating when a child suffers the consequences of poor housing, lack of transportation, food insecurity, racism, discrimination, and violence. Join us for an informative talk about this often misunderstood public health issue as we work to create a healthier community and better future for all.
