The Knowledge Center hosts an annual symposium for the children’s behavioral health policy, practice, advocacy, and research communities across the Commonwealth.  The Symposium is held during the first week of May in conjunction with Children’s Mental Health week.  The agenda consists of the Gailanne Reeh Lecture and panel discussions with local and national leaders.  

The Gailanne Reeh Lecture honors Gailanne’s deep commitment and lifelong dedication to improving the lives of children.  Gailanne was a cornerstone of the behavioral health, human services, and early education fields and worked across organizational and disciplinary boundaries with skill and grace.  She tirelessly built coalitions to ensure that everyone had a seat at the table and all voices were heard. Her unifying and energizing spirit continues to guide our work together.
