As I mentioned last month, we have officially re-launched the Genesee County Maternal Child Health Network! Network partners met on August 3rd to discuss how to work together to better the care of moms, babies, and families in Genesee County.
A total of 18 partner organizations joined us in person for this discussion – we are all excited to get started! For more information on the Network, visit our webpage: https://www.gchd.us/services/mchnetwork/.
Below you will find some important updates and general information from the Network. The August newsletter is attached – a monthly newsletter will be released at the end of each month. Each newsletter will feature a program or organization working to improve local maternal child health outcomes and include upcoming events for moms, babies, children, and families. We want to share your events! Find details on how to submit events to us below!
Friday, August 26 | 11am – 1pm
