The discussion will highlight:

2) Points of View – Insights, challenges, and lessons from researchers doing leading-edge evaluations of two-generation approaches around the country.
3) Audience Discussion – A Q&A session with the audience on building the two-generation field and influencing public, private, and philanthropic partnerships for better outcomes for children, parents, and their families.
