This year, WRMA will begin to present evaluation findings at national conferences from its three-year evaluation of First 5 Sacramento services. "Turning tobacco taxes into breastfeeding support services: Increases in longer-term breastfeeding from First 5 Sacramento's Enhanced-Community Lactation Assistance Project" will be presented in the Maternal and Child section of the American Public Health Association Conference in November 2010.

School Readiness services also represent a major component of First 5 Sacramento services targeting children ages 0 to 5 years. A summary of WRMA's comprehensive evaluation design of School Readiness services will be presented at the American Evaluation Association conference, also in November 2010 in a presentation titled, "Maintaining Validity in School Readiness Evaluation: A Multi-dimensional Approach in Methodology".
