Graciela Vecchia, R.N, M.N

I am a Toronto Public Health Nurse working for the City of Toronto. In my 17 years at Toronto Public Health, I had the privilege to work with prenatal families and parents/caregivers with children, either through one on one home visits or facilitating parenting groups. My experience working with various community agencies has taught me that it takes the collaboration of families and the community to support and promote the optimal health in children. In reflecting as a Public Health Nurse and a parent myself, I truly believe parenting is a learning process, we can't always be the perfect parent and we can only do our BEST within our capacity as parents. "We work together to put children first".
