Knowledge Cafe

AMCHP is exploring a new session design - replacing the Roundtable sessions with a Knowledge Cafe! What is a knowledge cafe? Quite simply, it's a method of bringing a group of people together to have an open, creative conversation on a topic of mutual interest to share their collective knowledge, ideas and insights and to gain a deeper understanding of the subject and the issues involved. This year's AMCHP conference will host 10 hot MCH topics! So, make sure to rise and shine early on Monday morning - the first round of dialogue starts bright and early at 7:15 a.m. - and be ready to share your knowledge and insights with your peers. Breakfast will be served at 7 a.m.

Here is a list of 10 topics for discussion:

  • Incorporating the Life Course into Title V Programs
  • Implementing the Affordable Care Act – Optimizing Opportunities for Maternal and Child Health
  • Preparing for the Spotlight – Program Development for the Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program
  • Promoting Health for Women with Disabilities
  • New Approaches for Addressing Childhood Obesity
  • Assuring Quality – Key Roles and Opportunities for State MCH Programs
  • How Are Title V Programs Preparing for Public Health Accreditation?
  • Surviving the Budget Crises – Strategies for Protecting Your Programs
  • Making Teen Pregnancy Prevention Efforts Inclusive
  • Pregnant and Parenting Teens – Preventing Subsequent Pregnancies
