Family & Community Health

Mother & ChildMission

To promote and improve the health and safety of Montana’s women, men, children, and families.

The maternal and child health (MCH) population encompasses women of childbearing age (15-44 years of age), pregnant women, infants, children, and youth with special health care needs and their families. The MCH population is of critical importance to the state and nation. Infants and children deserve a healthy start in life. The Family and Community Health Bureau (FCHB) has a major role in ensuring that services and programs to support healthy growth and development are available and accessible to Montana's MCH population.


March 2014 Regional Trainings Schedule for MCHBG and FICMMR

The Family and Community Health Bureau will not be organizing a conference for next spring.  Due to budget constraints we are changing to a series of regional trainings.
A combination training will be offered for the Maternal and Child Health Block Grant (MCHBG) and the Fetal, Infant, Child and Maternal Mortality Review (FICMMR).  These one-day trainings will be available in seven different cities across the state, listed below.  The agenda will run from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and lunch will be provided.  Information regarding registration will be sent closer to the training dates.  Other than lunch, please plan for any travel expenses to come from your county's MCHBG funding allotment.
