Join the MCH Workforce Development Center this fall to begin an exploratory workforce development journey!

Would you like to increase your workforce capacity, learn new skills and tools, and make progress on a real-life public health challenge of importance to you? Is your organization thinking about how to promote and sustain equity? Could you use a ‘reset’ to reassess how your organization is structured or how you and your colleagues approach your work?

If so, join a cohort of your Title V peers this fall
for Phase One of the National MCH Workforce Development Center’s 2023 Learning Journey.

Teams of Title V professionals and their partners will come together between October and December 2022 to participate in a series of conversations and workshops designed to help identify workforce goals and better understand a real-life public health challenge. During this time, Center coaches will serve as sounding boards to help determine the best next steps for your team. Teams that decide to continue to the journey’s more intensive phase will work with their coach to prepare an application to continue into Phase Two of the Learning Journey, which begins in January 2023 and includes a multi-day workforce development Learning Institute in Chapel Hill, NC, for your team and partners (expenses paid).

Be a Part of AMCHP’s Replication Projects!

Do you have a priority or strategy in your State Action Plan that you aren’t sure how to operationalize? Are you interested in building partnerships with MCH organizations while enhancing your organizational capacity? Consider participating in AMCHP’s Replication Projects for the 2022-2023 project year! Every year, AMCHP offers awards for organizations and agencies to replicate evidence-based/-informed practices from the MCH Innovations Database. AMCHP’s Replication Projects are also an excellent opportunity to

• Receive tailored technical assistance and support to build your state’s or organization’s capacity to implement an Innovation Hub practice;
• Begin adapting a practice to your local context; and
Strengthen and develop partnerships with relevant organizations to address priority needs.

Format and structure: This project provides two technical assistance tracks depending on your organization’s level of readiness to replicate a practice. The Capacity Building Track focuses on capacity building and developing the infrastructure necessary to implement a chosen practice, and the Implementation Track provides support to begin actual implementation of a practice. Both tracks operate as cohorts with participants receiving TA in the form of quarterly webinars which focus on specific tools and trainings aligned with the Implementation Stages Framework.

Want to learn more about this opportunity?

Visit https://amchp.org/innovation-hub-ih-replication-projects/ and watch an overview of the Replication Projects. Next, review the Replication Project Readiness Assessment to apply.

Home - MCH Lead Toolkit

The Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs (AMCHP) is pleased to share its new, interactive MCH Lead Toolkit. This resource was developed to help public health professionals access lead poisoning prevention resources, strategies, tools, and ideas that they can replicate or adapt in their states and communities. The toolkit features:

Easy navigation to meet your needs – you choose how you go through the toolkit and which sections you use
Interactive action center organized by focus areas for systems change (Family Engagement and Partnership, Clinical Settings, and more!)

Case studies from nine state teams that tested out innovative practices and quality improvement methods
Tip sheets and resources
Searchable resource index

This toolkit was designed for anyone who works in local and state health departments, but it will also be of interest and use to state and local decision makers, public health and environmental health professionals and leaders, students, policymakers, and anyone interested in decreasing maternal and child exposure to lead and increasing systems of care to meet the needs of lead-exposed MCH populations.

You can access the toolkit at www.MCHLeadToolkit.org. You may also contact [email protected] for additional questions or information requests.

This toolkit compiles educational, advocacy, and planning resources for public health agencies working to prevent and mitigate maternal and child lead poisoning. Learn More
