Maternal Health Innovations Grant

Welcome to the Learning Collaborative!

Our intention for the learning collaborative is to increase awareness and engage inter-professional collaboration in the provision of maternal health/well-woman care. The learning collaborative is primarily comprised of Family Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynecology as well as related providers from across the 6 perinatal care regions in North Carolina. To operationalize our efforts for sharing best practices and improving communication between obstetrical and primary care providers we are offering a series of continuing education opportunities as well as technical assistance to bridge the gap between theory and practice to advance family and community health.
