Healthy Generations eNewsletter
The Center has been renewed for another 5 years! We’re grateful and excited to continue our work as one of thirteen HRSA-funded Centers of Excellence in MCH Education, Science, and Practice across the US.
If you’re looking for quick communications about COVID-19, especially when using social media, our MCH Quick-Guide for COVID-19 can be found here.
This is the last Healthy Generations eNewsletter of the 2019-2020 academic year. We will resume eNewsletters this September. If you’d like us to share events, trainings, job postings or anything else on social media channels, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations to Center Research Assistants Abhi Ramesh and Teale Greylord, who are graduating this semester. Thank you for all you’ve contributed to the Center and the MCH Program. We’ll miss you!
