The Second Annual Parenting and Family Well-Being Forum
Ensuring the Success of Our Children: Combating New Morbidities

The phrase “new morbidities” was first coined in the 1970s to describe the shift in factors that affect the health and well-being of our families.  While the medical community has made great strides in eradicating infectious diseases, our communities increasingly face complex social issues that negatively impact the well-being of our children.  Please join us on April 22nd for the Second Annual Parenting and Family Well-Being Forum.  Topics include: healthcare disparities, family structure, homelessness, food insecurity, poverty, and risky behaviors in adolescents.  Dr. Glenn Flores, a national expert in disparities in children’s health and healthcare will be providing a keynote address.
