Help or Hindrance: Promoting Effective Policy
Pat Paluzzi, Dr.P.H.
President and CEO, Healthy Teen Network
Young families need access to the same types of supports that all youth and families need for positive development, yet they often need them in more intensity, for longer duration, and targeted to the developmental stage of the young parent. This lunch time presentation will feature a policy analysis, along with selected video vignettes, that will speak to the needs and gaps for young families in regard to resources and services across several "life domains" including education, employment, and life skills development.
