Diversity in MCH Training: A Peer Learning Collaborative is an intensive collaborative peer learning process in which a small number of highly motivated grantees are provided a structured and safe environment to address challenges to racial and ethnic diversity within their training program through learning opportunities, technical assistance, and collaboration with peers. The Collaborative is sponsored by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau Training Branch and will be facilitated by the MCH Training and Research Resource Center in partnership with the National Center for Cultural Competence.
We are pleased to announce that based upon the positive outcomes of the first Collaborative cohort, the MCHB Training Branch and MCH Training and Research Resource Center has launched a second cohort - the 2010-2011 Diversity in MCH Training Peer Learning Collaborative. This Collaborative cohort will begin in November 2010 and close in November 2011.
Six teams were selected to participate in the 2010-2011 Collaborative:
University of Arizona MCH Program and Pediatric Pulmonary Center
University of Arkansas Distance Learning Program
University of California, San Francisco, Nursing Leadership in Adolescent and Young Adult Health Program (NLAYAH)
