2017 Community Action Network Meeting Dates

Posted on January 4, 2017 by Deanna Spiotta

The Healthy Baby Network Community Action Network (CAN) facilitates community action toward improved perinatal health program planning and service delivery, emphasizing reduction of disparate perinatal health outcomes through cross-sector sharing, service linkages, and elimination of barriers to perinatal health equity. The CAN stimulates collaboration toward a common agenda, a shared measurement approach, alignment of community resources, and mutually reinforcing activities.

Members include: neighborhood residents; program participants; representatives from health and human service agencies that serve low income women of child bearing age and their families; and staff from Healthy Baby Network.  This existing network aligned with ROC the Future in 2015.  Focused on children from pre-conception to age 2, this network is developing action plans to address parenting education with a focus on fatherhood and safe and stable housing for pregnant and parenting women.  This network of 40 active members, including pregnant and parenting moms and dads, meets on the 2nd Wednesday of every month from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm.

The full CAN meets every other month, while the Parenting Education with a focus on Fatherhood Engagement sub-CAN and the Housing sub-CAN meet on the opposite months.  Join us for the following CAN meetings and sub-CAN meetings in 2017!  Contact Communications Director, Deanna Spiotta to RSVP to attend.  Lunch is provided.
