Cleveland Connects - The First 2000 Days, Part 1
How do you build a brain? And how do a child's first 2000 days determine intelligence, health, wealth and happiness, long-term? These are the questions guiding the next year of Cleveland Connects, a forum series sponsored by PNC Bank and presented by ideastream, Northeast Ohio Media Group and the Plain Dealer Publishing Company.

Join us for Cleveland Connects: The First 2000 Days, as the CEO of The Fred Rogers Co., Bill Isler, gives the keynote speech on the importance of early brain development, and Mike McIntyre, host of The Sound of Ideas, leads a panel discussion on how preschool can help that development along.

This event kicks off a year of coverage on, in the Plain Dealer, and on 90.3 WCPN and WVIZ/PBS ideastream, exploring the science, best practices and economics of early childhood education.
