Building upon the success of the co-hosted 2012 conference in San Antonio, TX, in 2014 we will again deliver a fully integrated, content-rich conference.
When you attend the "CityMatCH Leadership & MCH Epidemiology Conference," you get the best of both: the CityMatCH Urban Maternal and Child Health Leadership Conference, as well as the Maternal and Child Health Epidemiology Conference.

CityMatCH was initiated in 1988 as a special project of the Boston Department of Health and Hospitals with the goal of improving the organization and delivery of services to urban families and children. Initial project activities centered on developing an information base on what major health departments across the United States were doing to address shared urban MCH problems such as increasing racial disparities in infant mortality, inadequate access to prenatal care, substance abuse in pregnancy, and interpersonal violence. The CityMatCH project, under the leadership of urban MCH program directors in cities across the county, evolved into a national organization in 1991.
