Join us for the 2023 Reclaiming Lives Breakfast!

Benefiting Patient Care

Join Centerstone for the second annual Reclaiming Lives Breakfast supporting patient care at Centerstone. This year, our keynote speaker is Dr. Anne Scheer, a children’s sociologist at SIU School of Medicine’s Department of Population Science and Policy. Dr. Scheer’s work focuses on elevating children’s views and voices in research and policy.

Joining Dr. Scheer are experts from Centerstone’s Trauma, Treatment, and Training program, Hannah Chapman and Brittany Tillman, who will discuss adverse childhood experiences, and the impact these traumatic events have on one’s emotional, mental, and physical well-being.

We invite you to join Centerstone in making a positive impact in the lives of our youth. Everyone engaged in the Reclaiming Lives Breakfast helps advance Centerstone’s mission of delivering care that changes people’s lives, ensuring care is available in our communities.

Keynote Speaker

Dr. Anne Scheer

Dr. Anne Scheer is a children’s sociologist at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine’s Department of Population Science and Policy in Springfield, IL. In her current role as assistant professor, Dr. Scheer’s work focuses on elevating children’s views and voices in research and policy. Since 2020, Dr. Scheer has been leading efforts in Alton, IL, to transform the city into a UNICEF-recognized Child Friendly City. Building on her previous research with children and youth, which includes a focus on punitive school discipline and racial disparities in urban education; trauma-informed practices and their role in creating more equitable school climates; or rural students’ perspectives on health, nutrition, and well-being, Dr. Scheer’s work around the Child Friendly Cities Initiative (CFCI) in Alton seeks to engage children, youth, their families, and communities in identifying priorities for action and solutions that are both locally feasible and sustainable on our path to creating a city in which all children are happy, healthy, and safe. Further supporting this work, Dr. Scheer also leads a local coalition of 14 stakeholder organizations working to improve health equity, collaborates with local law enforcement to address high rates of youth violence, and explores innovative, low-barrier, community-based responses to the current crisis in children’s and youth mental health.
