The 2020 Census: Why it is important for children’s health and the challenge of the young child under-count

Sunday, April 28
8am-10am
Convention Center Ballroom II

Description: The Decennial Census is the foundation to our democracy. It not only determines how over $675 billion in federal funds are allocated, but it is used to draw district lines and to give voice to those who live in the United States. If individuals are not counted, they, their families and their communities have a lot to lose. Young children under the age of five are among the groups who are most likely to be undercounted by the Census. This can greatly impact the resources that are available to educate, feed, house and care for them. This plenary will educate the audience on the importance of the Census and why it is critical to count everyone, in particular, young children. It will set the stage for an in-depth discussion on the topic and action items for the pediatric health care community.
