NEW REPORT EXAMINES THE HEALTH AND WELL BEING OF BEXAR COUNTY, TEXAS KIDS
Center for Public Policy Priorities

April, 2012

The Center for Public Policy Priorities (CPPP) will host its annual Texas Kids Count breakfast briefing Thursday, April 5, 2012 at the Omni San Antonio Hotel Colonnade. The event, sponsored by Methodist Healthcare Ministries, will feature Texas Kids Count Director Dr. Frances Deviney, and a panel of community experts who will examine findings from the newly released Choices: The State of Texas Children 2012. The briefing is expected to draw local and state children’s advocacy and health policy experts, as new data is unveiled that shows how Bexar County and Texas children fare in comparison to the nation.

 

 

Dr. Deviney will present the key findings from The State of Texas Children, which offers a county-by-county perspective on issues ranging from poverty, food scarcity, and teen birth rates. Invited panelists include State Representative Mike Villarreal; State Senator Leticia Van de Putte; Senior Vice President for United Ways of San Antonio and Bexar County, Toni Van Buren; President of American Sunrise and former San Antonio City Council member, Mary Alice Cisneros; and Associate Director of Policy Reform and Advocacy at The Annie E. Casey Foundation, Dennis Campa.
