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. A performance measure describes a specific need that, when successfully addressed, leads to better health outcomes. As part of the Title V Maternal and Child Health Services Block Grant, all state MCH agencies are required to report on their progress toward achieving the targets they set for these 18 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.

Format

The series of one-hour training sessions will be held online, using iLinc web conferencing software. Each session will be recorded and the archives will be posted on this web site.
