    About Raising of America

    Imagine an opportunity where we can change the conversation about why some children are thriving while others are struggling. Through the study of neuroscience, how a child’s earliest surroundings and interactions are directly affecting the developing brain, the foundation for life-long cognitive and emotional development, can be better understood.  Idaho Public Health Association, along with Idaho’s Sexual Violence Prevention Program are hosting a screening of two episodes from the Raising of America film series that illustrates how a strong start for all our children can lead to better individual outcomes and a healthier, safer, more prosperous and equitable America.

    Two episodes will be screened: 

    Episode 3: Are We Crazy About Our Kids?

    Science shows that a child’s experiences during the early years are vital to building the foundation for future success – in school and in life. Now economists are studying the costs and benefits of high-quality early care and preschool. And they’re worried—not because we’re spending too much but because we’re investing too little where it matters most.

    Episode 5: DNA is Not Destiny

    Discoveries in the exciting new field of epigenetics suggest that fetal and early child environments literally become part of us. Experiences, scientists have learned, can leave chemical marks, called the epigenome, on our DNA, especially during the early years. The epigenome acts like a dimmer switch or volume control, turning genes on or off, making them shout or whisper. In so doing, they change the way our brains and bodies function--with enduring consequences for behaviors and mental and physical health.

    This event is free and open to the public, but registration is kindly requested.

    Light refreshments will be offered. 

    Film screening will begin at 6 pm with a guided discussion after.
