Conference Goals and Objectives

Organizers of the 14th Annual Maternal and Child Health Epidemiology (MCH EPI) Conference are excited about continuing to offer MCH professionals a platform to share experiences, enhance knowledge, and generate new ideas for promoting and improving the health of women, children and families. The 14th Annual MCH EPI Conference will bring together MCH professionals and public health practitioners from across the United Sates and the U.S.-Mexico Border. Hosted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Maternal Child Health Bureau/Health Services and Resources Administration (MCHB/HRSA) and CityMatCH, this event will offer sessions led by researchers, federal offi cials, advocates, health care providers and staff of state MCH Programs. As always, it is our hope that this year's conference will prove yet another success and develop participants' analytic skills and knowledge base to promote program effectiveness.

During the conference, participants will recognize the importance of bridging epidemiologic methods and MCH practice for effective program development, delivery and evaluation. Conference discussions will focus on the application of MCH EPI methodology to improve maternal and child health outcomes.
