The Administration for Children and Families' 22nd National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect (NCCAN) took place virtually from July 27 - 29, 2021. The conference included an outstanding slate of sessions focused around this year's conference theme, "Thriving Children and Families: Prevention with Purpose." The three-day event featured informative presentations; honest and timely discussions; and finally, and most importantly, a call call to action to refocus and reinvigorate our collective commitment towards ensuring a nation of strong and thriving families. The NCCAN Planning Committee extends a thank you to all - attendees, session presenters, exhibitors, poster presenters, and staff - for making the first virtual NCCAN a success.
