AMCHP-CDC Skills-Building Suite: Evidence-Based Practice: Moving Along the Continuum from Selection to Sustainability
Recent years have brought an increased focus on the value and necessity of investing in programs that demonstrate evidence of producing desired outcomes. To provide on-going support for “taking what works and applying it,” AMCHP, in partnership with Community Guide staff at CDC, is thrilled to announce the AMCHP-CDC Skills-Building Suite: Evidence-Based Programs: Moving Along the Continuum from Selection to Sustainability. This three-part virtual workshop is designed to increase state MCH program capacity to better understand evidence-based programs, dialogue about opportunities and challenges in implementing evidence-based programs, understand complexity in fidelity and adaptation, and consider evaluation and sustainability of evidence-based programs. The Skills-Building Suite will be presented via 90-minute virtual sessions over three days, Sept. 5, 10 and 13. Reserve your seat in the Skills-building Suite today! For more information, contact Sharron Corle.
Webinar Series: Leading in Changing Times
AMCHP efforts to strengthen the capacity of the MCH community to engage in the leadership process recognize that leadership development is a process, not an event. The Leading in Changing Times Series is an initiative launched by AMCHP as part of our larger efforts to support a diverse, effective and competent workforce in state and territorial MCH programs. The webinar series is a year-long, three-part project, blending principles of key leadership theory with real-world stories from senior-level MCH leaders. These 45-minutes leadership “conversations” are designed to share leadership ideas and inspiration. Part 1 of this series, Great Leaders are Great Decision Makers: The Importance of Decisiveness, is scheduled for Sept. 18 at 3:15 p.m. EST.

Toll-Free Hotline Survey for State Title V Program Staff
Federal Title V legislation requires that state maternal and child health agencies establish and maintain a toll-free hotline for families with information about programs and providers. Because of declining call volumes to the existing line and because of multiple other existing lines with similar purpose/function, Tennessee is in the process of evaluating its toll-free Title V line and asked AMCHP to facilitate a process to gather feedback from other states about their lines. This very brief survey asks about the services offered through the line, who staffs the line, whether call volume is changing, and what alternatives, if any, states are using to meet this requirement. If you have any questions, please contact AMCHP staff Caroline Stampfel. To connect to the survey, click here.
