This session discusses the importance of needs assessments in informing program evaluation and guiding the formulation of realistic evaluation goals and objectives. The session will also introduce the logic model as a way to articulate the components of a MCH program. Students will get to develop a logic model for the Child Wellness Program. NOTE: This session is part two of a six-course series.
