This fall, CityMatCH and more than 800 leaders in urban maternal and child health will make their way to Providence, RI—the Ocean State—for the 2019 CityMatCH Maternal and Child Health Leadership Conference, Sept. 23-25, 2019. This year features 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.

Join CityMatCH and learn 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.


Rhode Island Family Donation Drive

This year’s CityMatCH Maternal and Child Health Leadership Conference offers an opportunity to give back as you make waves! The Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) has developed a list of local organizations that provide supportive services to women, children, and families, including victims of domestic violence, women in recovery who have young children, and refugees. We invite all interested conference attendees to review the priority items on each organization’s “wish list”  and consider donating an item or gift card. Donations can be dropped off at the conference registration desk on any day of the conference. Thank you in advance for your support, which will help meet basic needs and strengthen opportunities for families across Rhode Island.
