October 25, 2017 11:30am-1:00pm CT
The Progress Review webinars focus on tracking and measuring the progress of select Healthy People 2020 objectives throughout the decade. This Progress Review webinar features 2 Healthy People 2020 topic areas:
- Family Planning
- Maternal, Infant, and Child Health
The availability of family planning services allows individuals to achieve desired birth spacing and family size, which contributes to better health outcomes for infants, children, women, and families. Maternal, infant, and child health is important for public health because their well-being determines the health of the next generation and can help predict future public health challenges for families, communities, and the health care system.
