The Natural Wonders Partnership Council (NWPC) will host a luncheon June 28 focused on ways to improve children’s health and wellbeing in Arkansas.

The luncheon at the Doubletree Ballroom in downtown Little Rock is open to the public and is being held in conjunction with the 2017 Healthy Child Summit.

Originally convened by Arkansas Children’s Hospital in 2007, the NWPC is a collaboration of more than 20 organizations dedicated to improving children’s health in Arkansas.

Arkansas ranks 45th in the nation when it comes to overall child wellbeing, according to a report released this week.

Speakers at the luncheon include Marcy Doderer, president & CEO of Arkansas Children’s; Skip Rutherford, founding council member and dean of Clinton School of Public Service; and David Erickson, director of community development for the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. Erickson will share his research and solutions for creating partnerships between community and business leaders to improve children’s health.
