JBA Presents at the Seventh National Summit on Quality in Home Visiting Programs

Several members of the JBA team presented their work at the Seventh National Summit on Quality in Home Visiting Programs in Washington, DC, earlier this winter. The Ounce of Prevention Fund hosts the annual event as part of its mission to ensure that all children—particularly those born into poverty—have quality early childhood experiences in the crucial first 5 years of life.

The 2018 summit, held January 31 to February 2, was funded by the Heising-Simons and Robert Wood Johnson Foundations. Researchers, advocates, policy makers, and practitioners came together at the Grand Hyatt Washington to address key issues in the field and share best practices. 

JBA was well represented across the 3-day agenda, with staff sharing updates from several home visiting projects.

In the hours leading up to the summit, the Home Visiting Applied Research Collaborative (HARC) held its 2018 Collaborative Science of Home Visiting Meeting. Julie Leis spoke at the HARC event as part of a session on variations in home visiting effectiveness across subgroups.
