Announcing the Children's Healthy Weight CoIIN!
On Friday August 12th, ASPHN was notified that its cooperative agreement application to the Maternal and Child Health Bureau was funded.  These funds allow ASPHN to develop and implement a Children's Healthy Weight CoIIN! CoIIN stands for Collaborative Innovation and Improvement Network.  
The Children's Healthy Weight CoIIN will be distinct from but collaborative with the Pediatric Obesity Mini CoIIN that ASPHN manages.  For a summary of our Children's Healthy Weight CoIIN application, contact Karen Probert.
