As part of the Arizona Rural Women’s Health Network’s work promoting policies, services, and practices that improve the health of Arizona women, the Network is hosting its first annual Women’s Health Symposium to recognize and share best practices from organizations serving women in rural Arizona. This conference is both a chance to commemorate National Women’s Health Week with meaningful professional development and networking, as well as an opportunity to support and experience the community of Prescott. Please join the Symposium for information, resources, and discussions on how to understand and serve women’s health needs in our rural communities.

Local Trainers Available
An important goal of Strong Families AZ and the MIECHV grant is to build the infrastructure to support home visiting services in Arizona. One of the ways we do this is by supporting the development of trainers in local communities who can provide training on an ongoing basis for home visitors.
You can now access those in your community that are trained to teach home visitors how to use the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ), a developmental screening tool that offers the opportunity to celebrate new developmental milestones of young children. This list of local professionals provides contact information for trainers by county. It is available at the Home Visitor Portal, Resources Tab, under the Additional Home Visiting Resources heading.
