2019 CityMatCH Maternal and Child Health Leadership Conference

About the 2019 CityMatCH Conference in Providence, Rhode Island

CityMatCH and more than 800 leaders in urban maternal and child health made their way to Providence, RI—the Ocean State—for the 2019 CityMatCH Maternal and Child Health Leadership Conference, Sept. 23-25, 2019. The conference featured a unique twist, as CityMatCH partners with the Rhode Island Health Equity Summit, organized by the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH).

Health Equity is a core value that CityMatCH elevates every year at its annual conference. Conference will intentionally spend an entire day showcasing how communities nationwide are prioritizing health equity to build healthier, more resilient, and more just communities.

The conference displayed how local maternal and child health leaders are:

  • Purposefully bringing the equity and justice lens to the forefront of every conversation. 
  • Persistently leveraging community voice and science and data to uncover issues of injustice and equip us in our pursuit of health equity.
  • Unwaveringly pursuing leadership strategies and practices that combine the power of local communities with a national MCH network to advance equity and justice.
