The health of children and youth in rural areas remains an Maternal and Child Health (MCH) public health concern. This population faces health disparities, especially within access to healthcare and health outcomes. The U.S. Maternal & Child Health Bureau (MCHB) released an hour-long webinar training to share the most recent national data on access, health status, and mortality patterns for youth and children in rural areas. The webinar spotlights three expert speakers and provides various resources for improving health outcomes of this population.
The webinar, along with other MCH trainings, can be found through the MCH Navigator–a website that provides competency-based learning and tools to improve the lives of children and families.
