MCH program teaches family-centered care
The Maternal and Child Health Leadership Training Program hosted a seminar on Family-Centered Care on Monday April 15. The day-long workshop was led by Dr. Manisha Joshi, assistant professor in the College of Behavioral and Community Sciences.
The seminar focused on the principles of family-centered care, including a panel on the role of fathers that welcomed representatives from Champions for Children as well as fathers from the community. Participants also learned about special topics related to FCC, including medical homes, and postpartum mental health issues for women. Anthony Panzera, a doctoral student in community and family health, gave a wonderful presentation on family-centered care with the LGBT community.
Seminar attendees included students and staff from USF Health, as well as representatives from community organizations and local businesses.
The Maternal and Child Health Leadership Training Program holds seminars throughout the year on cultural competence, family-centered care, and interdisciplinary practice. For more information about the MCH Leadership Training Program, please visit http://health.usf.edu/publichealth/mch/
