With the connection between maternal mortality and infant mortality, it is important for Healthy Start grantees to join efforts to support translating data into population-based action, through engaging with their state maternal mortality review committees (MMRCs). MMRCs craft recommendations deliberating the causes, critical factors, and preventability of individual maternal deaths.
This webinar will provide an overview of the purpose and goals of maternal mortality review committees, their purpose and how Healthy Start grantees can get involved. Julie Zaharatos, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will provide the MMRC overview and Ms. Lo Berry, President and CEO with REACHUP, a Healthy Start Grantee in Florida, will share her experience joining the Florida MMRC and how she’s leveraged this engagement to support her Healthy Start work and beyond. Resources and references will be shared.
Recommended Audience: All Healthy Start Grantees are encouraged to attend
- We recommend that grantees who are currently on their MMRC attend and consider sharing their experience and examples
- We also recommend grantees that are engaged with their Fetal Infant Mortality Review Committees attend
- We also recommend grantees who have not yet contacted their State about joining their MMRC attend

Data Utilization Life Course Model
This self-paced online course focuses on the important role of health-related data in formulating effective public health policy in the context of a political society. In a hands-on format, this course helps public health decision makers examine how public health stakeholders and policymakers can select appropriate data sources, use data responsibly, and represent important public health issues in a data-driven way. At the same time, the interplay of politics, public health, and health research is highlighted.
- Describe the importance of providing a scientific and data-driven foundation in policy making and goal-setting
- Locate appropriate and reliable sources of public health scientific and data information
- Interpret health-related data in a policy or political context
- Communicate research data findings to public health stakeholders
- Explain how to translate data into usable information Identify gaps in health research information

Evidence-based public health is a decision making process used to determine the best intervention strategy for a given problem, population and resources. This webcast will describe key components of economic evaluation and illustrate using economic evaluation analysis tools in prioritizing and implementing prevention and treatment strategies. The major types of economic evaluation will be discussed and differences among them will be highlighted. ROI as an economic evaluation outcome in public health will be discussed.

Fetal and Infant Mortality Review (FIMR) is a community based, action-oriented process aimed at improving services, systems, and resources for women, infants, and families. FIMR brings a multidisciplinary community team together to examine confidential, de-identified cases of fetal and infant deaths. Review of individual cases helps teams understand families’ experiences of racism and how those experiences may have impacted maternal and child outcomes. The website includes publications and resources, information on FIMR programs around the country, and links to partner organizations.
