Course Description:

Pacific West MCH Distance Learning Network was developed in response to the
identified training needs of maternal and child health practitioners providing
nutrition services in the Pacific West Cluster and to the MCHB continuing
education program priority established in maternal and child nutrition. The
overall goal of the project is to develop a distance-learning network among
MCHB-sponsored training programs and state Title V agencies to strengthen
nutrition services for children with special health care needs and their
families in Regions VII, IX and X, including Alaska, Arizona, California,
Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington,
and Wyoming. This series of six self-study modules is a product of the Pacific
West MCH Distance Learning Network. Much of the material was previously
presented at in-person training sessions and is also available as a CD-ROM with
resource notebook.
