2018 Annual Hedi Levenback Award Breakfast and Panel Discussion: Young Children in Poverty
Featuring Levenback Awardee and Speaker: Dr. Irwin Redlener, President Emeritus and Co-Founder of the Children’s Health Fund
Each year the New York Zero-to-Three Network (NYZTT) honors a local pioneer who has made a difference for young children and their families in New York at our Annual Levenback Memorial Event. NYZTT has selected Dr. Irwin Redlener as this year’s honoree for his lifetime of work on behalf of children.
Dr. Redlener will speak about poverty and its consequences that are keeping so many children from realizing their dreams and fulfilling their potential. He will consider why this matters for our collective future and what we can do now.
Dr. Redlener’s talk will be followed by a panel discussion focusing on recent opportunities and threats to providing high-quality health care to young children living in poverty and will address policy recommendations and legislative advocacy efforts we can take to help ensure the healthy development of young children in poverty.
