Title V Five Year Needs Assessment Virtual Training -- Part 2: Nuts and Bolts on Using Data
Title V legislation requires each state and jurisdiction to conduct a statewide, comprehensive needs assessment every five years. Hard to believe that the time has come for Title V programs to prepare for the next comprehensive needs assessment! The needs assessment process can be a useful tool for strategic planning, strategic decision making and resource allocation. It also provides a way for Title V programs to benchmark where they are and assess progress over a five-year period. To assist states or jurisdictions in preparing their assessments AMCHP is hosting a series of virtual trainings to provide guidance on the needs assessment process. The second webinar, The Nuts and Bolts on Using Data, is scheduled for Thursday, May 1 from 3-4 p.m. EST. [more]

In order to support state efforts to maintain a talented workforce, AMCHP is hosting the Building and Retaining a Resilient MCH Workforce for Tomorrow webinar on May 15 at 2 p.m. EST. [more]
