Physicians’ Network Virtual Event
Physicians’ Network Events are held twice a year, in April and October and are organized by the Health and Development Committee, which is facilitated by the Collaboration’s Child Development and Health Partnership Coordinator. These events are spaces for health professionals, and the broader early childhood care and education community to learn about, and explore, key issues in children’s healthy development. To see past Physicians’ Network Events, visit our Health Professionals Resources page or our Physicians’ Network Event virtual archive.
