5th Annual Greater Nashua Community Health Conference
The Nashua Division of Public Health and Community Services (DPHCS) is the Chief Public Health Strategist for the Greater Nashua Public Health Region (GNPHR), and the first accredited health department in New Hampshire. We invite you to be a part for our 5th Annual Greater Nashua Community Health Conference, Integrated Resources for Childhood Resilience: Growing Together as a Communitythat is scheduled for June 3rd, 2020 in Nashua, NH.
Traumatic childhood events such as abuse, neglect, and witnessing experiences like crime, racism, parental conflict, mental illness, and substance abuse can result in long-term negative effects on physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development. These adverse childhood experiences affect children and families across all communities, having consequences that impact entire families, communities, and our whole society. Our goal for this conference is to use a transformative approach to foster collaboration across child health, public health, and community-based agencies to continue our conversation on toxic stress and childhood trauma to build community resilience.
We all have a role in building community resiliency. We must work together to increase public understanding of the impact of toxic stress and trauma on health and well-being. This year’s conference will focus on the strategies that are pertinent to pediatricians, educators, and parents to prevent and mitigate childhood adversity among school aged children. Join us to recognize shared goals, build on areas of strength, and align comprehensive efforts as we create a greater impact, stronger partnership, more resources, and increase sustainability for our community.
