Join the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the second webinar in a two part series to learn more about CDC’s Child Abuse and Neglect Technical Package, and to hear from Vermont and Oregon about exciting initiatives surrounding family-friendly policies.
This webinar will highlight health in all workplace policies and provide guidance on developing and sustaining partnerships to help advance priorities. ASTHO developed a policy guide to supplement CDC’s Essentials for Childhood framework, focusing on strategies to increase economic support for working families, expand access to quality childcare and education, and promote flexible, family-friendly workplace policies. This resource presents an overview of the health department’s role in informing policy and lays out several options for states and other partners to incorporate in cross-cutting policy efforts to promote safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments for children and to ensure a foundation for health into the next generation.
During this program CDC will present on their Child Abuse and Neglect Technical Package and highlight some of the innovative policies that states have initiated. Oregon will then present on their Preschool Promise Initiative and how they are focusing on equity and opportunity to help families thrive. Vermont will discuss their Health Impact Assessment of Paid Sick Leave and how policies such as that progress communities.
• Identify steps departments can take to promote healthy, thriving families by providing high-quality education.
• Educate health agency leadership and partners about policy approaches to prevent risk factors for child abuse and neglect.
• Increase awareness of CDC’s Preventing Child Abuse and Neglect:
A Technical Package for Policy, Norm, and Programmatic Activities.
