CHICAGO (AP) — Another summit is headed to Chicago.
While the NATO summit is wrapping up on Monday, May 21, Mayor Rahm Emanuel plans to host a half-day summit on child malnutrition in the United States and around the world.
The mayor's office says the summit will include educators, business leaders, non-profit groups and others.
The meeting will be at the Chicago History Museum. It's called "1,000 Days to Change the Future: Making Malnutrition History." It is part of an effort launched in 2010 by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and others called the "1,000 Days Partnership." That effort is aimed at improving nutrition for women and their children between the woman's pregnancy and the children's second birthday — a critical time in a child's development.
