The Northwest Center for Public Health Practice has recently posted two graduate-level training sessions aimed at professionals who work with at-risk maternal and child populations in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington (Region 10 of the Health Resources and Services Administration).

This training will help states achieve maternal and child health (MCH) national performance measures under Title V. To ensure the relevance of the series, topics are identified by state public health personnel. The series is supported by the Maternal and Child Public Health Leadership Training Program with a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration's (HRSA) Maternal and Child Health Bureau.

The one-hour training sessions posted on nwcphp.org were initially conducted online, using iLinc Web conferencing software.

The first session, Teen Suicide: Strategies for Prevention, isĀ  taught by Melissa Schiff, MD, MPH, a professor in the UW Department of Epidemiology. The second session, Early Childhood Oral Health, is taught by Julia Richman, DDS, MSD, MPH, a practicing dentist who completed her Master of Public Health practicum at Skagit/Island County Head Start.
