Local Groups Set to Discuss Results, Impact of 85th Legislative Session on Children

“How did Texas’ children fare in the 85th Legislative Session? The Institute for Healthy Living,  in partnership with the Paso del Norte Health Foundation, invites community members for a legislative update, presented by Children at Risk.

Attendees will learn about what was accomplished and discuss the local impact of new legislation on nutrition, physical and mental health, public education, human trafficking, and other key issues impacting children in El Paso.

Highlights include a conversation with a legislator; a State-of-the-State review; Key Wins, Misses, and Next Steps; as well as a panel featuring local experts. Children at Risk staff, Dr. Bob Sanborn (President and CEO), Mandi Kimball (Director of Public Policy and Government Affairs), Jenny Eyer (Senior Policy Analyst) and Dr. Claire Bocchini (Pediatric Infectious Disease Specialist and Child Advocate), will lead an engaging discussion on key legislation impacting our children.
