ALL ABOUT TTTLE V - HOW THE MCH BLOCK GRANT CAN ADVANCE ADOLESCENT HEALTH
Maternal and child health (MCH) and family health programs within public agencies are natural partners and leaders in addressing the special health needs and considerations of adolescent populations. Such programs bring expertise in the administration of a variety of programs affecting families, as well as strong collaborative relationships with providers, families and others to the field of adolescent health. In the fun and engaging discussion, with Iliana Siarmalis-White, Senior Program Manager for Adolescent Health at the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs, we discussed how the Title V MCH Block Grant can advance adolescent health.
