Partners in Progress Newsletter released and Twitter Campaign launched

Dr. Michael Warren

Dear MCHB partners,

Today, Child Health Day 2020, I share with you two items from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB): our Partners in Progress MCHB Newsletter and the #5ForKidsHealth Twitter campaign.

Please open, explore, and share the newsletter (open link above) for information, stories, funding calls and resources. I speak for my team when I say that I hope you will find something that sparks your interest, serves your needs, or simply brings a bit of inspiration during this difficult year.   Thank you to Dr. Sara Kinsman, Director of the Division of Child, Adolescent and Family Health, for her heartfelt letter that tops this newsletter issue and expresses the gratitude the MCHB family feels for our partners during this challenging time.

As your dedicated partner in overcoming health inequities for children, I also direct your attention to the MCHB #HRSA Twitter Thread #5ForKidsHealth, promoting Child Health Day with a series of messages on health equity.  The first tweet announces the National Survey of Children’s Health 2019 data release today.  Then, throughout this week, the Twitter Thread will feature MCHB programs working to achieve health equity for children.  Please like, retweet, and respond with your comments and achievements toward child health equity during the day and week.

Sincerely,

Dr. Michael Warren

M.D., MPH, FAAP.  Associate Administrator of HRSA's Maternal and Child Health Bureau
