Community Leaders to Examine Issues Facing Kids in San Miguel County

July 15 Discussion to Explore Child Health and Education Issues

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

May 3rd, 2013

Community leaders will examine health and education issues facing local children in a community discussion July 15 in Telluride. To start the conversation, the Colorado Children’s’ Campaign, Colorado’s leading voice for kids, will present statewide and county-specific data on child well-being from its 2013 KIDS COUNT in Colorado! report.

The annual KIDS COUNT report provides statewide and county-by-county data on a range of factors impacting child health, education and overall well-being. The goal of this year’s KIDS COUNT report is to provide a clearer picture of how kids across Colorado—and locally—are faring and to provide local leaders and those interested in improving the lives of kids with the county-specific data and analysis they need to better serve children.

The free event is co-hosted by Bright Futures for Early Childhood and Families. Breakfast provided.

WHAT: Colorado Children’s Campaign Presentation and Discussion

WHERE: Wilkinson Public Library, 100 W. Pacific Ave., Telluride

WHEN: 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
