On Tuesday, the Connecticut General Assembly's Early Childhood Caucus, along with the CT Early Childhood Alliance, an early childhood advocacy organization, will host a special briefing on the powerful role that parents and caregivers play in optimizing foundational brain development during the first five years of life, and the policies that can support them.

Dana Suskind, MD, Co-Director of the TMW Center for Early Learning and Public Health at the University of Chicago and the author of 2022's "Parent Nation: Unlocking Every Child's Potential, Fulfilling Society's Promise," will be featured during this event, as well as Pamela Truelove-Walker, EdD. Dr. Pamela Truelove-Walker joined the TMC Center in 2023 and serves as Director of Early Childhood Education (ECE) Strategy. She leads the testing, development, and implementation of the Center's tools for supporting ECE practitioners.
