Some resources for outreach:

chip workgroups
December CHIP Workgroups Cancelled

Thank you to everyone who has participated in the CHIP workgroups. We at Maricopa County Public Health are continuing to compile the input provided so far in the process and align it with the CHA data to identify possible measurable goals, objectives, and strategies. While that is happening, we are cancelling the December workgroups. We will reconvene the groups once materials are ready for participants to review.

If you want to catch up on what's happened so far or get notified when the next workgroup date is scheduled, join the Google Group where you'll find workgroup notes and supplemental information.

Milestone Tracker App for Parents and Providers

Most parents aren't experts in early childhood development. That's OK: a free app from the CDC helps parents learn how they can help their young child develop. The app has a milestone tracker and suggested activities; the website has free materials for providers and parents.
