The Glazer Children's Museum served as a fantastic backdrop for this event, as its fun-filled exhibits and educational activities highlighted the importance of creating a safe and nurturing environment for children to learn and grow. Rosie and Sheri seamlessly integrated the principles of the Healthier Homes for Children program into the museum's themes, reinforcing the message that a child's development is deeply influenced by their surroundings.

As the day progressed, Rosie and Sheri were heartened to witness the growing interest among parents to participate in the program. Families eagerly signed up to receive further information and be a part of this transformative initiative.
