Illinois Kids Count Symposium: “Leaving a Healthy Legacy”
Join us for “Leaving a Healthy Legacy,” an Illinois Kids Count Symposium sponsored by Jack & Jill of America and Voices for Illinois Children. The event will feature the newly released Illinois Kids Count 2014 report, “Child Health Matters,” which focuses on the health status of our state’s children. This topic is particularly important with the ongoing implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

This new discussion series offers special opportunities to convene civic, business, and community leaders in a face-to-face discussion with their legislators on the best strategies to build better lives for local children and families.
