Registration Open For HELP's Fall Research Expo
Join us on Wednesday, October 24, 2012 for the Human Early Learning Partnership's 2012 Fall Research Expo.
Last year’s Expo connected the dots, illustrating how HELP’s cell to society perspective has significantly contributed to our understanding of the importance of the early years over the last eleven years. This year’s event will focus on the future. Our full day event promises opportunities to examine HELP research streams in more depth, exchange ideas and build skills.
