From the President

2010 Annual Conference

By Phyllis J. Sloyer, RN, PhD, FAHM, FAAP

I can’t believe a year has passed since our last Annual Conference and, believe me, a lot has happened! One of my goals as President is to promote the dissemination of best practices among the maternal and child health community and to share innovations that can improve maternal and child health outcomes. I continue to be amazed at the extraordinary talent of our MCH community and it is a talent that needs to be shared. Recently, I had the opportunity to listen to some innovations and was struck by the need to make sure that we catalogue and publicize them. We waste precious time and resources reinventing the same strategy, practice, or policy. So, this Annual Conference is all about promoting our best ideas, practices, and innovations that are applied in the public and private sectors. AMCHP is all about you and I invite you to this exciting event. What better way to meet your colleagues and discuss our future as well as reflect on all of our successes as Title V turns 75!
