Maternal and Child Health Fellows 2020


The Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Fellows program is designed to support legislators who are experienced or emerging leaders on MCH related issues. The kickoff meeting will set the stage for the work of the MCH Fellows and will provide issue content in a peer learning setting. Topics will emphasize health issues and will include, but are not limited to, policies and programs to reduce infant and maternal mortality, address mental health and substance misuse, and improve access and care for the MCH population.

The program goals include:

  • Build knowledge about new research and policy.
  • Exchange ideas and solutions related to maternal and child health.
  • Meet and learn from other legislative leaders.
  • Connect with leading researchers and policy experts.
  • Identify practical information to use in your state and develop action steps.
