Join Interactive Webinar on Improving the Health of New Mothers
Posted January 26, 2016 by Cindy Hutter
The epic storm that swept through Washington, DC this past weekend may have forced the cancellation of the Association of Maternal & Child Health Program (AMCHP) annual meeting, but the storm can’t stop the learning.
NICHQ, along with partners AMCHP and the UNC Center for Maternal and Infant Health, is turning the session “Improving the Health of New Mothers: Building Woman‐Centered Postpartum Systems of Care” into a free public webinar.
We invite you to join us on Feb. 2, from 3:30-5 p.m. ET (register) to hear from expert panelists about key issues that impact the health of new mothers, including: postpartum visit utilization, access and quality; connecting clinic with home visits; maximizing community resources; and supporting self‐advocacy and patient activation. Through the sharing of current challenges and emerging postpartum health initiatives, the interactive webinar will focus on discussing actionable strategies for change, including considering the role of Title V in promoting preconception wellness.
The session will be led by Sarah Verbiest, DrPH, MSW, MPH, Executive Director of the Center for Maternal and Infant Health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; Erin Bonzon, MSW, MPH, of AMCHP; and Elaine Fitzgerald, DrPH, MIA, NICHQ’s Infant Mortality CoIIN Director.
NICHQ had also planned to share at AMCHP a poster entitled, Quality Improvement in Public Health: Using a Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network (CoIIN) to Help States Build Stronger Surveillance Systems to Help Save Babies’ Lives. We invite you to take a look at the poster below and send any questions or comments to Julius Anastasio at firstname.lastname@example.org
