In 2011 the Washington State Department of Health Office of Healthy Communities integrated MCH and Chronic Disease Prevention funded work. Through a streamlined organizational structure, merging two offices into one, 14 state plans were collapsed into one comprehensive plan. This training reviews key steps in integrating MCH programs and activities with chronic disease prevention programs and activities that resulted in the Washington State Plan for Healthy Communities. The workshop covers lessons learned and results to date.
