I produced this overview of the University of Florida’s first national summit on early childhood health, education and policy.
Early childhood studies is one of the highest priorities at the University of Florida. Campus wide, faculty from many disciplines are focusing their efforts to address collaboratively the grand challenges facing young children who are most vulnerable and their families. This momentum has spurred us to bring together many of the nation’s renowned researchers, educators, scholars, policy makers and leaders for an early childhood national summit, Starting Ahead. Staying Ahead.
This national summit, hosted by the University of Florida and the colleges of Education, Medicine, Public Health and Health Professions, and Law in concert with the Anita Zucker Center for Excellence in Early Childhood Studies, will serve as a convener of the nation’s outstanding thought-leaders. Collectively, we will address timely topics that interconnect research, policy and practice to establish science-informed actions and advocacy and inform the public about why investments in early childhood are critical.
The clip of the child at :21 was licensed through VideoBlocks and the final 2 shots of Dr. Snyder and children playing with blocks are from a 160 over 90 produced video. I recorded the rest of the media, conducted the interviews, and wrote and edited the piece in my job as a multimedia specialist for UF Advancement.
