Maternal & Child Health

The Center of Excellence in Maternal and Child Health is funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration to provide leadership training in MCH that focuses on promoting health equity through an interdisciplinary and collaborative approach that is culturally competent and family-centered. Florida needs a diverse/skilled MCH workforce to address its unique population, the persistent health disparities within several key MCH indicators and the growing regional workforce shortages. The vision of the MCH Program is that "all children and families will live and thrive in healthy communities served by a quality workforce that helps assure their health and well-being."
