P1058 Stockman Lecture: The Importance of Connection and Support

Saturday, November 3
11:20 AM - 11:40 AM
Location: Valencia Ballroom, Orange County Convention Center


In 1997, Tamela Milan’s five children were in state welfare custody. She struggled with opioid use disorder and began another high-risk pregnancy. With the encouragement of her infant daughter’s pediatrician and the coordinated services of a Healthy Start program, Ms. Milan embarked on a new path. She reunited her family, moved from public housing into a town house, and completed college and a master’s degree. She has worked for 20 years as a parent advocate, peer educator, developmental screener, community health worker, and case manager. Ms. Milan will share her inspiring journey and how she “has been on both sides of the fence.” Her story underscores the importance of a supportive relationship with a pediatrician and community agencies.
