Hear the MacQueen Winner
Donna Petersen, senior associate vice president of USF Health at the University of South Florida (USF), is the winner of the 2019 John C. MacQueen Lecture Award for innovation in the field of maternal and child health. Petersen, who is also dean of the College of Public Health and professor of Global Health at USF, will accept the award and deliver the MacQueen Lecture at AMCHP's 2019 Annual Conference in San Antonio, Texas.

Petersen is the author of a textbook and numerous publications and book chapters on needs assessment in public health. She is a frequent lecturer on topics related to maternal and child health, health care reform, and systems change and leadership, and has provided extensive technical assistance and training to more than 25 state health departments. Her dedication and accomplishments fulfill the spirit of the award, which honors one of AMCHP's most distinguished members: Dr. John C. MacQueen, an administrator and clinician, an advocate, innovator, and educator who made his presence felt throughout the country through his tireless work on behalf of children with special health care needs.

Send Youth and Young Adults to the Conference
AMCHP has created special rates for youth and young adults to attend the annual conference!  See all the rates, including for full and partial attendance.

AMCHP Board President Susan Chacon wrote a letter encouraging state agencies and programs to send their youth leaders (and future leaders of maternal and child health) to the conference, saying that they can not only learn from other programs, but interact with and teach the adult champions how to build their capacity as well.

The National Network of State Adolescent Health Coordinators crafted a 10-point explanation of why adolescent health coordinators should attend the AMCHP conference. Reasons include that adolescent health is not only a focus of the conference but is also an integral part of public health, as states that invest in the health of young people are investing in the future of their citizens and communities. In addition, the Title V Block Grant National Performance Measures include adolescent health.
