The RWJF Center for Health Policy at UNM hosts a sneak preview screening of the forthcoming documentary, "The Raising of America," on Thursday, April 23 at 6 p.m. at the Sheraton Hotel Uptown, located on Louisiana and Menaul Blvds. NE in Albuquerque. The event is free and open to the public.

Produced by California Newsreel in conjunction with Vital Pictures, this 60-minute documentary and public engagement campaign explores how strong a start for all our kids can lead to healthier, stronger and more equitable America.  

"The Raising of America" moves back and forth between the science of human development and the stories of families and communities struggling to provide the rich and responsive environments all children need to thrive-while too often hindered by social conditions and inequities that impede their every effort. It doesn’t have to be this way. What initiatives and national priorities might enable all our children the opportunity for a strong start while building a more prosperous and equitable future for our nation?
