Share Your Heart and Talent
Got an artistic talent that's difficult to show on the job? Share it at AMCHP 2017! Attendees at this year's Annual Conference are invited to stage a two-minute skit during a plenary session that deals with some aspect of maternal and child health. The skit may take many forms, including song, poem, dialogue, comedy, game show, dramatic scene or dance. It may touch on any aspect of maternal and child health work – such as what it's like to work in the field, partnerships, issues and challenges, success stories, etc.  Send ideas to Board President Eileen Forlenza (Eileen.Forlenza@state.co.us), and we'll work with you to make it happen!

Participate in a Well Woman Care and Title V Discussion
The Woman's Preventative Services Initiative and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists will host Well Woman Care and Title V: Creating a Shared Vision for Capacity at AMCHP 2017 on March 5 from 8:00-9:30 a.m. CT. This special breakout discussion will focus on the resources and tools needed by state MCH programs and partners to improve access to preventative health services for adolescent and young adult women. During this breakout, AMCHP staff and partners will facilitate discussions on how Title V programs are implementing strategies to overcome barriers to care experienced by women, and together craft a vision for a Community of Practice on preventative health care for women facilitated by AMCHP in the months following the conference. Hot breakfast will be served. Please register in advance.

Join Our MCH Epidemiology Discussions
AMCHP will host an MCH Epidemiology Roundtable discussion at the 2017 AMCHP Annual Conference for MCH staff to network with their epidemiologist peers and share their successes and challenges specific to epidemiology, data, analysis and assessments on March 6 from 5:45-6:45 p.m. CT. The roundtable is open to all MCH professionals, including those who may not have an epidemiology title or training but are tasked with epidemiologic responsibilities. Appetizers will be served. Please register in advance.

Breastfeeding and Health Equity Reception at Uzazi Village
AMCHP invites you to a special reception during AMCHP 2017 at Uzazi Village,
a nonprofit organization established to address racially-biased perinatal health inequities in communities of color based in Kansas City, Mo. The event will consist of a reception with light refreshments, a tour of the center and a discussion of the "Sister Doula Program", a Medicaid MCO reimbursed community-based perinatal community health worker program that supports women from prenatal to postpartum.

The reception will take place on March 6 from 6:00-9:00 pm CT. To register for the reception, the password is amchp. There is a $5 fee to offset transportation costs. If you have any questions, please contact Christina Ratleff (cratleff@amchp.org).
