Please join the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) as we discuss how states and territories are encouraging positive, language-rich interactions and relationships between caregivers and children, particularly from the prenatal period to three years of age. Webinar speakers will discuss the importance of early learning and language development for child and brain development. Speakers will share experiences implementing public health programs and policies that successfully foster language nutrition and improve health and education outcomes for children.
