Translating Policy into Action

The 2024 Maternal and Child Health Conference is dedicated to translating policy into action to address the complexities surrounding maternal and child health disparities. This interdisciplinary virtual conference will bring together providers, researchers and community stakeholders interested in advancing policy solutions.

Through discussions and interactive sessions, participants will explore the process of translating current evidence-based research into actionable policies at the local, state, and national levels. The conference will focus on connecting researchers with community members and policy advocates, examining the role of stakeholders in policy development, and strategies for involving community partners in the policy-making process.

Additionally, participants will explore the role of policy action in advancing health equity and the upstream and downstream effects of policy changes on maternal and child health outcomes. Special emphasis will be placed on understanding how policy translates into practice, examining successful case studies of policy implementation in maternal and child health, fostering dialogue on emerging challenges and opportunities in the field, and exploring innovative trends within the maternal and child health policy landscape.


This conference is a free professional learning opportunity held fully online over the course of one day. It is ideal for providers, researchers and community stakeholders seeking to advance their science and practice in translating policy into action to address social determinants of health for maternal and child health populations. The conference includes:

  • Local and state speakers.
