NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The 2015 Children’s Advocacy Days will be held Tuesday and Wednesday in Nashville.

The Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth partners with a variety of child-serving organizations to sponsor the event, which will be held in the War Memorial Auditorium across from the state Capitol.

The event gathers child advocates from across the state to learn more about policies related to children and meet with state leaders.

Dr. Kenneth Minkoff of Harvard University will speak on Wednesday. He is one of the nation’s leading experts on integrated treatment of individuals with co-occurring psychiatric and substance disorders.
