    illustrate?

Teaching Public Health Students
  • Maternal and Child Health Core Course Objective

    the consequence of differential exposures not

    persons life.

    shift

    staff meetings

  • Engaging staff in identifying current and future
    activities that fit within 12-Point Plan
  • Enabling staff to each have their own A-ha!
    moment

Teaching Health Department Staff

    concrete terms for them in their specific jobs
    and programs - making it personal

    management in our organization about the
    importance of preconception health and the Life
