School of Public Health

More than moms and babies, our program focuses on the entire life course, from prenatal stages through adolescence and women’s health. Our students develop the leadership skills to improve the research, service systems, programs, and policies that support the health of women, children, and families in the United States.

The Center of Excellence in Maternal and Child Health offers interdisciplinary, graduate-level training in maternal and child health research and practice, including epidemiology, biostatistics, program planning and management, policy development, and advocacy.


Daniel Enquobahrie, UW faculty and Director of MCH, won the 2017 Loretta P. Lacey Academic Leadership Award from the Association of Teachers of Maternal and Child Health.

Amritha Bhat, alumni, class of 2017, had her thesis published in the Journal of Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynecology: Delivering perinatal depression care in a rural obstetric setting: a mixed methods study of feasibility, acceptability and effectiveness.

Alyssa Bosold, and Divya Patil, class of 2018, both earned the MCHB Graduate Student Epidemiology Program Award.
