CityLights Cover-June 2014 Issue

As the roles and responsibilities of public health professionals all around the country continue to evolve, I keep thinking to myself, ‘what an exciting time to be a part of the Maternal and Child Health field.’

Every day, professionals are developing a better understanding of the health issues affecting women, children, and families in our communities, and are coming up with creative, informed ways to prevent disease and promote health.

While we all should be proud of the strides we’ve made as a field and the impact of our work, I believe that MCH experts and leaders NOW have a remarkable opportunity to embrace one of the most pressing needs of the MCH workforce; professional development.

In this issue of CityLights, we highlight CityMatCH leadership & workforce development tools, resources, and opportunities available to CityMatCH members, as well as other resources available to all MCH professionals.

Together, let’s ‘Grow the Field of MCH’.
