Purpose

The Maternal and Child Public Health webinar series provides up-to-date information on topics related to Title V maternal and child health (MCH) national performance measures.

The series is supported by the Maternal and Child Public Health Leadership Training Program with a grant from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration. The program provides interdisciplinary, graduate-level training in maternal and child public health epidemiology and practice, including applied research, program planning and management, policy development, and advocacy.
