Kid’s Convening — Seven Priorities:
 We identified seven children’s health issues that Aurora Health Alliance and the Aurora community might address. These issues are attainable, collaborative in nature, measurable, and “small enough to win, but big enough to matter.” These issues are summarized in the following seven Information and Discussion Guides.
Health Literacy
Social Determinants of Health & Health Equity
Medical Home Availability & Usage
Expansion & Coordination of CHWs and Navigators
Integration of Physical & Behavioral Healthcare Services
Preconception, Prenatal, & Postpartum Care
Refugee & Immigrant Access to Care
