Across North Carolina organizations are implementing innovative programs and strategies designed to build strong, healthy families and communities. These strategies have created significant long-term improvements for children and are the kinds of innovations we need in this time of increased accountability. With nationally recognized speakers and a diverse array of workshops, Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina's Learning & Leadership Summit offers insight into the latest research, strategies for increasing protective factors, and effective implementation, public awareness and advocacy.
New this year!
During the Summit, be sure to stop by our poster session in the South Hall adjacent to the exhibitor area to see highlights from some of the latest research, projects and other work in the area of child maltreatment prevention.
Health Learning Cluster
Due to requests from medical professionals, we are offering an array of workshops specifically designed for professionals working in the medical community. Look for workshops that focus on child well-being, the medical home, and child maltreatment as a public health concern.
