Promising Practices

The Promising Practice Multicultural Conference  focused on Advancing Public Health & Human Rights through Education and Service.  While at this conference the keynote address was by Dr. Nicole Alexander-Scott.  The two workshops that I attended were Community Partnerships to Address Disparities in Type 1 Diabetes Care for School-Age Children and Youth Actions for All Abilities.  Being part of the Rhode Island College Youth Development Degree Program I loved the session learning about youth.  This session was lead by the youth through the Rhode Island Department of Health Office of Special Needs.  There was a lot of in site of the youth programs and history including Dare to Dream which is a conference that is for the youth taught by the youth.  It was an amazing conference with lots of different ideas for youth and health information.
