The first focus setting for the COTC’s outreach and translation program is child care, since the majority of children spend the majority of business hours in child care away from home.  To this end, two child care-focused efforts are underway:

Upcoming event: On April 21-22, 2015, the Illinois COTC will co-present a conference about environmental health in child care with COTC CAB member Illinois Action for Children.  The conference will be tailored to child care providers, but is open to all, and will be held in Springfield, Illinois at the Crowne Plaza.

COTC research: To describe baseline environmental health routines among child care providers in Illinois, the COTC is surveying 235 child care providers, and interviewing 50 of these providers.  The findings will inform COTC messaging and strategy going forward.
