Maternal and Child Health is committed to providing clinicians, parents, and men and women of childbearing age with opportunities to become more informed about health topics that influence infant mortality in our state. To that end, DSHS has organized multiple learning opportunities for community health workers, promotores, nurses, physicians, mid-level clinicians, social workers, health care administrators and others.
