Maternal and Child Public Health Training Program

The over arching goal for the training program is to increase the number and
quality of culturally competent MCH professionals who will provide the next
generation of MCH public health leadership for the development of
evidence-based policies, programs, and program evaluation to address the
health and wellness women, children and families throughout the Southwest and
Rocky Mountain region, and nationally. This ambitious goal will be attained
by building on five years of experience and achievements as a HRSA funded MCH
Training Program, and by enlarging the scope and impact of existing program
through a new set of goals and objectives. This training grant supports the
development MPH, DrPH, and Junior Faculty trainees in the areas of maternal
and child health for a consortium of public health training programs in the
Rocky Mountain region. Funded by HRSA/MCH
