August 10, 2023

We are excited to announce that AMCHP is partnering with the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) to convene the Title V Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Federal-State Partnership Meeting. This will be the first in-person Title V Partnership Meeting since 2019! 

The Title V MCH Federal-State Partnership Meeting will be held at the historic Mayflower Hotel in downtown Washington, DC from Sunday, November 5 – Wednesday, November 8, 2023. Optional pre-meeting sessions will begin the afternoon of November 5 with the required meeting beginning on November 6.  The Title V MCH Federal-State Partnership Meeting is intended to be a unique technical assistance opportunity for federal and state partners to engage in thoughtful discussion around multiple MCH issues.
