Family Advocacy and Involvement in Title V Programs
Collaboration between Title V Maternal and Child Health Programs and family leaders provides a “win-win” opportunity to leverage programmatic expertise with families as an action arm for advocacy. Program faculty will discuss appropriate roles for family advocates and describe the nuts and bolts structure and organization for how Title V programs can meaningfully operationalize their involvement. Faculty will also include a discussion of the skills and training family advocates need to be successful as well as examples of successful models for partnership between family advocates and Title V Maternal and Child Health Programs.
