Mayerson Child Well-Being Initiative Launched in Partnership with Cincinnati Children's Hospital

On May 13, a community-academic team from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital launched the Mayerson Child Well-being Initiative with a free virtual event: Thriving Children: Sharing Diverse Perspectives Through Research, Story, and Art. The initiative aims to generate transformational change in how communities, organizations, institutions, and systems nurture the well-being of children and youth so that all children and youth may thrive. The four-hour event wove together talks from nationally known speakers on child, youth, and community well-being; visual and performance art from local youth and adult community members; and an intergenerational panel of community members who shared a facilitated conversation about child and youth thriving. To read more about this initiative, please click here
