Leveraging Learning to Leadership

October 2016
The MCH Navigator is pleased to share new online learning opportunities, resources from the field, and the latest in health transformation. Check out below for highlights and visit our website for a full list of new trainings.

We're happy to announce that the 5-Minute MCH program is now relaunched as an enduring resource on the website. From here, you can learn more about the program, access extensive learning materials on each competency, including introductory material, additional learning opportunities, implementation strategies, and our summary webinars with experts from the field.

In other microlearning news, stay tuned for our new program, Public Health Pronto, launching in January! For those of you who liked the fast-paced format of 5-Minute MCH, this program takes a similar approach to the Core Public Health Competencies and topics of Health Transformation.

These vetted trainings address the MCH Leadership Competencies.

These resources have been gathered in NCEMCH's Knowledge Base:
