The UW Maternal & Child Health Webinar Series provides up-to-date information on topics related to Title V MCH national performance measures. There are 18 performance measures that describe a specific health need that, when successfully addressed, can lead to better outcomes.

Our most recent episode was Breastfeeding as Food Sovereignty featuring lactation consultant Camie Goldhammer. She discussed how Native American communities are reclaiming breastfeeding as an indigenous food source and reviewed how public health professionals from across many disciplines and departments can support breastfeeding through their work today.

You can watch archived episodes of MCH webinars for free at the Northwest Center for Public Health Practice.
