Implementing Evidence-Informed Practices in Maternal and Child Health: Bridging Domestic and International Methods

Wednesday, July 22, 2020 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

We have the opportunity to end preventable deaths among all women and children while improving their health and well-being. Far too many women, infants, and children in the United States and worldwide still have little or no access to essential, quality health services.  The current attention on COVID-19 may further reduce access to these services.

In this timely webinar, health experts will discuss current approaches and innovative methods to addressing maternal and child health, applying lessons learned across both the United States and globally. This interactive webinar will focus on the following topics:

  • Improving care for mothers and babies through state or multistate quality improvement collaboratives, led by Vanessa Lee, Infant Mortality CoIIN Coordinator, Health Resources & Services Administration
  • Hospital-based quality improvement initiatives focused on evidence-based maternity practices supporting optimal infant nutrition, led by Catherin Sullivan, Director of the Carolina Global Breastfeeding Institute
  • Strengthening the quality of neonatal and child health services via strategic engagement of the private health sector, led by James White, Senior Associate at Abt Associates 

We invite you to engage with our health experts as they discuss equity, thought leadership in social determinants of health, collaborating, and strengthening knowledge among healthcare practitioners.
