Maternal Child Health Needs Assessment

The August CHC meeting focused on the health of women, children and families. The goal was to discuss ways to make Washtenaw County a healthier and more equitable place to become pregnant and raise a child. During the meeting, we reviewed current data on the health of pregnant women, infants, children and teens in our community. We looked at some of the community-wide indicators together and then split up into groups to dive more deeply into data related to:
  • Adolescence
  • Childhood
  • Infancy
  • Pregnancy/Post-partum
  • Women of childbearing age

This meeting was part of our community assessment process and will help lead to a plan for action.
