Every five years the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Program is required to conduct a statewide needs assessment of the health and well-being of Colorado’s women, children and youth, including those with special health care needs, and their families. The purpose of the assessment is to identify seven to 10 specific priorities that state and local MCH programs can impact during the next five years. The selected priorities will focus MCH work from 2016-20.
WE NEED YOU? Community members who care about the health and well-being of women, children, youth and families across the great state of Colorado (including local public health agencies and community partners, community members, family and youth leaders, etc.) are invited to attend.
WHAT? "Your Community, Your Voice" conversations are designed to hear YOUR ideas on how to improve the health and well-being of women, children and youth, including those with special health care needs, and their families.
