WithinReach’s Learning Series (Virtual) Event: Early Childhood Development
About this Event
Please join us for the WithinReach Learning Series event on September 16, 2020. Hear from a panel of experts on one of today’s most complex and consequential health matters—early childhood development.
Looking beyond the essential elements of monitoring, milestones and screening, the event focuses on what’s been missing in the early childhood development conversation to date. Through a dialogue framed in both science and social inequities, we’ll discuss some of the systems of support for families and the actions necessary to move health for all forward.
Our program will consist of a moderated panel discussion, followed by a Q&A. The panel discussion begins at 5:30 p.m. We invite you to stick around from 6:30 – 7:00 p.m. for an optional breakout room to continue the conversation.
- WithinReach created the Learning Series as a way to initiate much-needed conversations with our partners, advocates and the community. We appreciate open and spirited discussion, however authentic communication only exists when we remain respectful of other perspectives and ideas.
- This event will be recorded to be viewed by others in the future. By registering for this event you consent to having your participation recorded. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Julie Greenberg at email@example.com.
Moderator Kay Knox, CEO of WithinReach, is honored to team up with a panel of key leaders in early childhood development; with expertise in pediatrics, brain science, education and health equity.

Toxic stress responses begin to explain how significant adversity in childhood becomes biologically embedded and influences behavior, learning and health outcomes across the lifespan. In this era of significant adversity
Toxic stress responses begin to explain how significant adversity in childhood becomes biologically embedded and influences behavior, learning and health outcomes across the lifespan. In this era of significant adversity (a global pandemic, racial tensions, economic disparities, political polarization), it is important to understand what the science of toxic stress does and does not say about the impact of all this adversity on children. More importantly a new, strengths-based framework is needed to clarify how to build healthy, resilient children in the face of such adversity.
- Define toxic stress and describe how it helps to elucidate “the problem.”
- Define relational health and describe how it helps to elucidate “the solution.”
- Define at least three components of an integrated public health approach to build relational health.

Being discharged from the hospital is a vulnerable time for families and caregivers of children with special health care needs (CSHCN). Appropriate resources and support are essential for care at home and can prevent complications or readmission. The California-based Nurse-led Discharge Learning (CANDLE) Collaborative brings together interdisciplinary clinicians to improve discharge care delivery for CSHCN. Learn about two new discharge practices: closed-loop medication reconciliation and tailored medication teaching, and multidisciplinary discharge rounds with early discharge notification. Speakers will share how these innovative practices can be integrated into existing clinical workflows. Audience Q&A is highly encouraged.

Date: October 8, 2020
Time: 11:30 am – 1:00 pm PST
We acknowledge that this is a difficult time for many students and families in our communities, both here in Washington state and around the nation. And we acknowledge the ongoing injustices endured by the Black community and other communities of color.
COVID-19 has illuminated many areas of inequity in our educational system. Not every student has the same access online. Not every family has the support needed to tutor. We all have seen that in the last several months. But leaders in conversations around educational equity have long known that our schools are not equitable, especially when it comes to race. COVID-19 has given us an opportunity to have critical conversations and develop solutions together.
Join us on October 8, 2020 from 11:30 am-1:00 pm for a statewide virtual FREE convening around Racial Equity and Education. First, we will hear from Dr. Benjamin Danielson, Director of Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic in Seattle, exploring the role of racial equity, diversity, access, and inclusion in our public education system. Then, join us as we break into groups to discuss the issue together.
“He’s one of my favorite people in the whole world — a gentle, quiet soul who speaks so from the heart, and has the ability to move people to address issues of equity and social justice”
— Patty Hayes, director of Public Health, Seattle & King County

In this free public lecture, Jonathan W. Kanter, PhD – Director of the University of Washington Center for the Science of Social Connection - will review the science of bias
In this free public lecture, Jonathan W. Kanter, PhD – Director of the University of Washington Center for the Science of Social Connection – will review the science of bias and behavior change, including new research that emphasizes the important role mindfulness and acceptance practices can play in protest and antiracism efforts.
George Floyd’s death woke white America but most are still in bed. Although many people have attended protests, real change requires all of us to engage more meaningfully in antiracist action on an ongoing basis. Yet, even within the passion and power of a large protest movement, obstacles remain. Some may find themselves ordering antiracism books and surfing resources on social media endlessly but doing nothing more. Others may be overwhelmed by uncertainty about what to do, such as how to address racism within their own families or circles of friends. Still others may be paralyzed by anxiety about stepping out of their comfort zones and making mistakes. Inaction is the result.
Traditional training and education efforts often focus on raising awareness of problems such as implicit bias, white fragility, white privilege, and microaggressions but often fall short with respect to producing behavior change and sustained action. They often do little to address the obstacles to change head on. For some participants, the terms produce defensiveness and become another obstacle to taking actionable steps towards being antiracist and promoting racial justice.
For the last decade, our multi-racial team at the University of Washington Center for the Science of Social Connection has been developing an approach to antiracism work that couples an activist mentality with the psychological science on bias and the technology of sustainable behavior change. In this talk, Dr. Kanter will review this science, including new research that emphasizes the important role mindfulness and acceptance practices can play in protest and antiracism efforts, particularly as tools to overcome the barriers of fatigue, uncertainty, anxiety, and defensiveness. Dr. Kanter will lead participants through exercises and examples to demonstrate how mindfulness and acceptance can address these obstacles to get people out of bed and translate antiracist values into everyday action.
