July CoIIN Infant Mortality Summits
AMCHP is proud to partner with MCHB and NICHQ to organize sessions at the 2014 Collaborative Improvement and Innovation and Network (CoIIN) Infant Mortality Summits. The Infant Mortality Summits will convene states from Regions I-III and VII-X to prepare them for the rollout of the CoIIN initiative in their state. Regions VII-X will meet Jul. 21-22, and Regions I-III will meet Jul. 24-25. Both summits will take place in the Washington, DC, area. A third summit for the Pacific Basin jurisdictions will be held Aug. 24-26 in Honolulu, HI. For more information on the summits, please visit the CoIIN website here or contact our partners at NICHQ at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Building, Implementing, and Sustaining Teen Pregnancy Prevention Efforts
Please join us on Thursday, Jun. 26 from 2-3 p.m. EST for a timely discussion of state examples of teen pregnancy prevention programming through the lenses of positive youth development, the program implementation life cycle, and disparity reduction. In recent weeks and coinciding with Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month in May, numerous federal partners and their grantees participated in webinars on teen pregnancy prevention activities, including on the topics of engaging males and prevention of subsequent teen pregnancies. As MCH programs consider their own efforts designing, coordinating, and evaluating teen pregnancy prevention programs within their state, this AMCHP webinar will highlight three state teen pregnancy initiatives at different stages of implementation, and will focus on their efforts to reduce disparities (by race/ ethnicity and urban versus rural) in teen pregnancy and childbearing, leveraging novel partnerships and outreach methods. This webinar is part of the AMCHP Women's Health Info Series, funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Division of Reproductive Health.
