Cross-Program Collaboration to Advance Preconception Health in Kansas
To our Kansas community members in need of services, it doesn’t matter what program those services fall under: Title X Family Planning, Maternal Child Health, WIC, or home visiting. What matters is that they are connected to the right support at the right time and receive follow-up support.
Lauren Alexander, Women/Maternal Health Consultant, KDHE
To ensure all MCH programs have access to best practices and resources that support them in serving the diverse needs of Kansans, KDHE offers free monthly virtual trainings to professionals from all local MCH programs, including Title X; Teen Pregnancy Targeted Case Management; Pregnancy Maintenance Initiative; Maternal and Child Health; Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting; Early Childhood Developmental Services; Kansas Perinatal Quality Collaborative; and Special Healthcare Needs. These sessions are also opportunities for programs to share community initiatives and strengthen their networks.
