This webinar provides an overview of the Life Course Metrics Project and its process, sharing decision points and methods for engaging the MCH community. The webinar explains how the final set of life course indicators were developed through a collaborative process with seven state teams (Florida, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nebraska, and North Carolina) to identify and promote measurable progress using the life course approach to improve MCH.
Representatives from state MCH programs, including MCH epidemiology, share their perspectives on participating in the project, the challenges and lessons they learned, and how the life course indicators will influence their work and future efforts. The webinar concludes with a discussion with National Expert Panel members on the implications of the life course indicators for the field of MCH.
