Join us in Nashville, TN, or as it is affectionately known: Music City, for the 2017 CityMatCH MCH Leadership Conference and Healthy Start Convention. Be one of 450+ local and state Maternal and Child Health professionals to share successes and lessons learned with your peers.
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.
