Nathaniel Foote reflects on the progress-to-date resulting from the Alberta Family Wellness Initiative (AFWI) and the Early Brain and Biological Development (EBBD) Symposium. He describes potential models for innovation, and discusses the implications for the path ahead for AFWI and for EBBD participants. Drawing on lessons of innovation from industry, this presentation shows how the model for accelerating innovation and improving early childhood outcomes developed by the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University is potentially relevant for Alberta, and highlights the steps needed to capitalize on this knowledge.
