Dr. Paul Dworkin travels to Los Angeles

As seen in The June 2017 Help Me Grow National Center E-note Dr. Paul Dworkin recently traveled to Los Angeles to meet with key stakeholders and constituents over a two day period to talk about First 5 LA and L.A. Care Health Plan’s work to develop the foundations of Help Me Grow LA, system model that works to promote cross-sector collaboration in order to build efficient and effective early childhood systems that mitigate the impact of adversity and support protective factors among families, so that all children can grow, develop, and thrive to their full potential. Dr. Dworkin was impressed with California’s ability to leverage regional or community specific partnerships and initiatives to build out dynamic and unique Help Me Grow systems. Congratulations to Help Me Grow LA, one the many Help Me Grow systems in California supported by the California First 5 Association.
