2024 State of the Child Summit

Join NC Child and the North Carolina Institute of Medicine in Raleigh, North Carolina, for the inaugural State of the Child Summit.

The State of the Child Summit will focus on the current state of children’s health and well-being in North Carolina, and engage parents, lawmakers, and leaders across communities, sectors, and organizations in discussions around policy solutions to ensure North Carolina’s children have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

After the Summit, join us for a reception celebrating North Carolina’s Child Health Champions, where you’ll have the opportunity to network with other dedicated child advocates, legislators, and organizations making a difference in the lives of our state’s children.

We can’t wait to see you on Tuesday, April 30th at Marbles Kids Museum for the inaugural State of the Child Summit!

3/19/24 UPDATE: General admission and reception-only tickets have sold out! We are so thrilled by the enthusiasm around this event, and our team is currently looking into ways we can accommodate additional attendees. If you are still interested in attending the Summit, please add your name to our waitlist.




In these sessions, you'll be hearing from industry leaders, legislators, community partners, parents, and youth on the critical issues that affect our state's youngest residents. Read more about our morning plenary panels and afternoon breakout sessions.
