How can Healthy Start EPIC Center support my program’s success?
The Healthy Start EPIC Center provides free training and technical assistance (TA) to support Healthy Start grantees in achieving program goals to reduce infant mortality, reduce health disparities, and improve birth outcomes. Training and TA are mutually reinforcing capacity building activities. Training strives to build staff core competencies and organizational capacities to effectively provide Healthy Start services. TA provides for free, in-depth assistance in a focused area to an individual grantee or group of grantees, with an eye toward practical application of evidence-based practices targeting Healthy Start performance measures. Training and TA are offered through various modalities, including conferences, regional meetings, webinars, phone consultations, Communities of Practice, and Learning Collaboratives.
