First 2000 Days Community Summit – Feb. 19

Wednesday, January 03, 2018

Each year on President’s Day, Smart Start of New Hanover County and a committed group of faith leaders asks the community to gather to plan how we can ensure that all of our children have everything that they need in their first 2,000 days of life to be successful in school and in life.

The 5th Annual First 2000 Days Summit will be held Feb. 19 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Lifepoint Church in Wilmington. Following a screening of the documentary, “Resilience,” participants will be led in a discussion and breakout groups to discuss a strategic plan for our community to confront issues of toxic stress for young children in New Hanover County. 

The event is free and open to the public. Registration is now open.
