This episode continues a series looking into the lessons the child welfare field learned during 2020. The coronavirus pandemic forced agencies to approach their work and interactions with children and families differently. Agencies adopted precautions to maintain the safety of their staff and clients and began to build information-sharing and teaming partnerships. One such partnership is between child welfare and the public health field. Dr. Kathryn Wells, section head for child abuse and associate professor of pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and the director of the Kempe Center for the Prevention and Treatment of Child Abuse and Neglect, joined the podcast to discuss the impact child welfare can have within a jurisdiction’s overarching public health approach.
