The Help Me Grow Roundtable: Promoting Development through Child Health Services was held in Hartford, Connecticut on June 1, 2005. The format was based on the successful ROSS ROUNDTABLES on Critical Approaches to Common Pediatric Problems sponsored by Abbott Laboratories. We are grateful to The Commonwealth Fund for their sponsorship of the Roundtable and for publication of the proceedings, and also acknowledge support provided by the Children's Trust Fund, the Children's Fund of Connecticut, and the Connecticut Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. We thank the discussants and participants for their effective contributions to the proceedings, thank Amy Fine, BSN, MPH, Rochelle Mayer, EdD, and Lisa Honigfeld, PhD. for their reviews of manuscripts, and acknowledge the assistance of Help Me Grow staff Laura Baird, Karen Fleming, and Brenda Lammie in ensuring a successful conference.
