Level 3 Grantees attended a kick-off webinar of the Mentoring for a Healthy Start Program. All Level 3 grantees will serve as Peer Mentors and be assigned one Mentee who is new to the Healthy Start Community. The kick-off webinar, hosted by the EPIC Center and the National Healthy Start Association (NHSA), discussed expectations and responsibilities related to the mentor role.
