The Camden Coalition annual conference was held in Boston on November 1-3 with a focus on “Putting Care at the Center”, to bring awareness to those with complex health and social needs. The event aimed to bring together organizations and systems working to further complex care services, as well as to highlight voices from those with lived experience. Several CTC-RI staff and members of the leadership team attended and presented a workshop, “Promoting Integrated Behavioral Health in Pediatrics: Rhode Island Efforts.”  

The session panelists included Debra Hurwitz, Executive Director; Linda Cabral, Senior Program Manager; Elizabeth Lange, MD, Waterman Pediatrics,;and Swanette Salazar, CHW. The panel was moderated by Nelly Burdette, CTC-RI Senior Integrated Behavioral Health Program Leader and Director of Population Behavioral Health at Boston Medical Center. This workshop highlighted the RI policy background of pediatric behavioral health care, as well as CTC-RI’s role in building infrastructure, implementing programs, and tracking outcomes of pediatric integrated behavioral care. Highlighted projects included the Developmental Understanding and Legal Collaboration for Everyone (DULCE) project, and the Pediatric Weight Management ECHO Series. This was a great opportunity for CTC-RI to connect with other organizations across the country who are interested in implementing similar programs. View the presentation materials through this link.
