Public Health Workforce: Threatened By Mass Extinction?
This podcast, from the American Journal of Public Health, tackles a major crisis occurring in the governmental public health workforce, as well as in state and local health departments. It reviews the massive wave of retirement that will slash a third of the workforce, what needs to be done to adapt the workforce to the current needs and challenges of public health 3.0, and how PH-WINS is conducted and what it tells us about the current interests and needs of the workforce.

Save the Date: Release of New CDC Vital Signs Report on Pregnancy-Related Deaths
On May 7, 2019, CDC will release a Vital Signs report showing that pregnancy-related deaths happen before, during, and up to a year after delivery. This report provides data from CDC's Pregnancy Mortality Surveillance System (PMSS) and from state Maternal Mortality Review Committees (MMRCs). It looks at leading causes of death throughout pregnancy and postpartum and highlights potential strategies MMRCs have identified to prevent future deaths. Look for CDC's new Vital Signs materials here on Tuesday, May 7 at 1 p.m.

Sleep-Related Infant Suffocation Deaths Attributable to Soft Bedding, Overlay, and Wedging
Unintentional suffocation is the leading cause of injury death among infants under 1 year old in the United States. In a new report in Pediatrics, CDC scientists and colleagues investigated infant suffocation deaths in CDC's Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID) Case Registry from 2011 through 2014. The study includes deaths that were assigned the category of explained suffocation with unsafe sleep factors per CDC's SUID Case Registry classification system.

Online Modules to Identify and Address Human Trafficking
According to the latest research, eight out of 10 victims of human trafficking were seen by a healthcare provider.

Experiences of Community Doulas Working with Low-Income, African American Mothers
A study published in the journal Health Equity set out to learn from doulas the components of their services that might best serve low-income, African American women, and to show the significance of doulas in helping these women have healthy, positive, birth experiences. It concludes that doulas can support birthing persons to mitigate the negative effects of social determinants of health, specifically racism and classism, and highlight potential avenues for doulas to consider when working with birthing persons who have low income and are African American. The authors include Katrina Wint, AMCHP's program manager for women's health.

Beginning in 2016, the Center for Adolescent Health & The Law, with support from the AYAH National Resource Center, developed comprehensive confidentiality guides for each of the states involved with the Collaborative Improvement & Innovation Networks (CoIINS). The purpose of the guides is to inform health care providers and promote access to essential health care, including preventive health services, for adolescents and young adults.
