AMCHP Recognized for Outstanding Leadership and Advocacy and is the Recipient of a Director’s Award 

The Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs (AMCHP) was awarded an Outstanding Leadership and Advocacy Award by the Maternal & Child Health (MCH) Section of the American Public Health Association (APHA).  

“We are so pleased to be recognized by the MCH Section and APHA,” said Michael R. Fraser, PhD, CAE, AMCHP’s Chief Executive Officer. “We are proud of the great work that our board, members and staff have accomplished in the last year as we continue to support and advocate for state maternal and child health programs. Receiving this award is especially fitting as we celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the Title V Maternal and Child Health Services Block Grant and look toward state implementation of health reform.” 

In addition, AMCHP was presented the Director’s Award by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau at the 75th Anniversary of Title V celebration on October 20 in recognition for its contributions made to the health of infants, mothers, children, adolescents and children with special health care needs in the nation.
