About this Webinar

This annual meeting is an opportunity for Division of Maternal and Child Health Workforce Development (DMCHWD) grantees to convene and network around a cross-cutting topic of interest. The meeting is hosted by AUCD's Interdisciplinary Technical Assistance Center on Autism and Developmental Disabilities (ITAC).

What is the purpose of the meeting?

The meeting will review the MCH Leadership Competency 11: "Working with Communities and Systems." This includes relevant definitions, knowledge areas, and foundational/advanced skills for professionals across all disciplines.

What content will be covered?

Highlighted grantees will share examples of compelling, innovative and/or impactful work that is aligned with this competency. They will share strategies on implementing the competency within their Programs and supporting the development of the foundational and advanced skills related to working with communities and systems. The agenda is to the right.

Meeting Presenters

The meeting will have three presenters representing MCHB workforce development grantees.

University of Alabama at Birmingham logoUniversity of Alabama at Birmingham's Leadership Education in Adolescent Health (LEAH) program will discuss their tabletop SimUAB Opioid Simulation, an experiential learning tool that allows participants to navigate life as a person living with opioid use disorder, a health care provider, or a treatment counselor.

What will I take away from the meeting?

Attendees will learn and explore new strategies for developing capacity in this competency area within your programs / projects. A notetaking template (provided at the right) will help attendees identify applicable strategies and a tip sheet will be developed that summarizes key points from presenters.

Where is the meeting taking place?

All content will be delivered through AdobeConnect, an interactive online platform.

Who should participate?

The meeting is open to all DMCHWD grantee programs (specifically Project Directors and others in leadership roles at each site). Trainees, community partners, etc. are welcome to participate.
