The Ann M. Logan Lecture on Early Childhood Development was created "to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas to ensure a healthy start for all of Denver’s children" and honors Ann Logan, librarian and co-founder of Reach Out and Read in Colorado, who has made significant contributions to early literacy learning in the state. Past lectures have been lively and informative and draw attendees from a variety of fields concerned with early childhood development, including librarians. This year's lecture, entitled "Making it Happen: Linking Young Children to Critical Supports and Services," will feature Dr. Paul H. Dworkin, M.D., Professor and Chair of the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine and Physician-in-Chief, at the Connecticut Children's Medical Center. Help Me Grow, an initiative created as a result of Dr. Dworkin's research, promotes the early detection of children with developmental and behavioral problems and connects them with support services and community resources. The lecture will take place on Tuesday, November 10, at the Rita Bass Trauma and EMS Education Institute. Get more information or RSVP here.
