Pacific West Maternal & Child Health Distance Learning Network-Oral Health

Contact: Beth Ogata, 206-685-1256

Core Function: Technical Assistance and Outreach Training

This project is part of the Pacific West Maternal and Child Health Distance Learning Network that was developed by a collaboration between CHDD the University of Southern California's UCEDD. The network was overseen by nutritionists from state Title V programs in HRSA Regions VII, IX and X. It was developed in response to the training needs identified by maternal and child health practitioners providing services in the Pacific West. The Nutrition and Oral Health component includes development and implementation of a distance-learning curriculum on nutrition and oral health for children. The curriculum was developed with the help of advisory group members from HRSA regions VIII, IX, and X and other experts in the field of nutrition and oral health. This web-based curriculum is intended for use by dental professionals, primary care providers, nutritionists, educators, therapists, and others who serve young children. The curriculum includes practical examples and family-centered practice and cultural competence are incorporated into the material. Continuing education credit is available for dental and nutrition professionals upon completion of this web-based training at Although the funding period has ended, the curriculum is still available on-line and is used regularly.
