Today, my first day at Prevent Child Abuse America, marks the beginning of a new chapter in my professional life—one that’s accompanied by great excitement, as well as deliberate reflection and anticipation.
Join us for Moving Upstream, the 2019 Prevent Child Abuse America national conference, Sept. 16–18, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The conference will examine innovative programs and practices, family-focused policies, cutting-edge research, and public awareness and engagement strategies to help drive the field toward upstream prevention so that every child has the opportunity to grow up safe and nurtured. Join colleagues at the largest conference in the country focused exclusively on the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Learn from leading experts in the field, receive hands-on training, and network with colleagues and peers. You won’t want to miss it!
Whether you’re gearing up for family road trips, wilderness adventures, or even weekend picnics and barbecues with friends, your online purchases through AmazonSmile can help provide the great childhoods that all children deserve.
