The University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Public Health manages The Association of Teachers of Maternal & Child Health, or ATMCH. After a recent strategic planning process, ATMCH has revised its mission, target audience, and scope of work. ATMCH still aims to grow and support excellence in teaching Maternal and Child Health (MCH) across multiple academic settings. Specifically, ATMCH offers a forum to support the cadre of current and future faculty, aiming to enhance knowledge and skills essential to teaching in the field of MCH. However, ATMCH’s revised target audience is now current and future faculty…doctoral and pre-doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows, junior/early career faculty, senior faculty, and others who want to improve their teaching in academic programs. Despite a revised scope of work, ATMCH will offer the following resources and opportunities to its members:
Over the course of the next year, ATMCH will be working to assess the networking, mentoring, and training needs of current and future MCH faculty. Following this, ATMCH will plan, host, and evaluate a responsive activity/event. In lieu of this, will not be hosting its annual Speed Networking Event at the American Public Health Association (APHA) Conference this fall. ATMCH communicates the availability of new resources, activities, and opportunities to members via email.
Membership is free of charge.Friday Letter Submission, Publish on July 05
