About the Event
This year’s Summit will be an experiential opportunity to learn, cross-share, garner ideas and see tested outcomes to support their households. Additionally, key takeaways include 1) accessing quality care through Mayor Bowser's 1-800-MOM-BABY, 2) increasing Medicaid re-enrollment and boosting the utilization of expanded healthcare services, and 3) promoting Family-Friendly Policies in the workplace.
Returning to work—following live births, pregnancy loss, new foster placements or adoption—requires support. This support must be from trusted sources and relatable voices. With each scenario, families decide whether to return to, leave, or change how they engage in the workforce. Parents do not have to be alone and there are a variety of cultural, regional, and industry-specific resources that will be integrated into Mayor Muriel Bowser’s 6th Annual National Maternal and Infant Health Summit.
A ‘whole of government’ and multi-sector approach is necessary to listen and be responsive to parents’ needs.
