Children’s Trust held its biennial Prevention Conference that brought together 600 child-serving professionals at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center in October 2017. With a theme of “Embracing Prevention, Empowering Communities,” the two-day event featured national and state experts who emphasized the role everyone plays in keeping children safe through four keynote speeches and 40 breakout sessions. The variety of topics included child brain development, adverse childhood experiences, home visiting, race equity and inclusion, protective factors and fatherhood engagement.
