Our presenters will speak on topics such as:

+ Introduction to pediatric emotional trauma
+ Connecting to community
+ Providing meaningful wellness opportunities for staff
+ Addressing barriers to incorporating diversity, equity and inclusion practices in hospitals and healthcare settings
+ Innovative solutions to delivering mental and behavioral health care services
