Early childhood and K-12 education do more than give children information. They foster relationships and instill knowledge that are powerful drivers of future health. Former State Health Officer Maxine Hayes, high school teacher and Kent curriculum coordinator Gita Krishnaswamy, and Representative Ruth Kagi will discuss why education is a public health issue and how it is more important now than ever.

This is the first in a series on Public Health issues presented by the UW School of Public Health and Town Hall, to foster discussion and encourage people to think broadly about the different dimensions of public health.
