Meet Dr. Laura Brown!

This month we are thrilled to recognize one of our leading volunteer advocates who is leading the charge in the fight against heart disease and stroke. As both a young mother and a pediatrician, Dr. Laura Brown was honored to be asked to be on both the Center and Residential Childcare Licensing Committees, as this role - advocating for the health and safety of children from a medical and developmental standpoint - felt like a natural extension of her daily activities.

Being on the Committees has given Dr. Brown the opportunity to share on a wider scale some of the evidence-based, proactive measures that help to protect babies and children. She is especially excited about the many hours of deliberation and hard work that went into the recent successful implementation of rules limiting screen time, increasing physical activity, and restricting trampoline use (the latter of which is associated with nearly 100,000 serious injuries per year, mostly in young children).

While Dr. Brown regularly speaks about the importance of the standards every day with her individual patients and their families, the Committee has given her the opportunity to reach more people, including childcare providers and parents. She hopes to continue her role in caring for and protecting more children throughout Utah!
