Maternal and Child Health Community Leadership Institute

The Maternal and Child Health Community Leadership Institute (MCHLI) is a leadership development and training program which includes expert led faculty presentations, a Maternal and Child Health scientific session track during APHA Annual Meeting, and distance learning opportunities throughout the program year. The Institute provides public health professionals and MCH community leaders with beneficial tools for capacity building within a group effort and ultimately assists participants in honing and fully developing their leadership skills.

 

The MCHLI has provided a forum for cross cultural training helping to facilitate partnerships, highlight research, foster communication, increase community support, and promote advocacy. This inclusive approach addresses the needs of economically disadvantaged populations, low-income nations, and other socially underprivileged groups. Ultimately participants acquire new approaches and skills that they implement as they work to improve MCH issues in their communities.
