Kid’s Convening — Seven Priorities: During Phase I of the Kids’ Convening, participants suggested seven children’s health issues that Aurora Health Access and the Aurora community might address. These issues had to be attainable, collaborative in nature, measurable within a two-year period, and “small enough to win, but big enough to matter.” These issues are summarized in the following seven “Information and Discussion Guides.”
