Texas Department of State Health Services in collaboration with the Office of Minority Health Resource Center and March of Dimes will be hosting a Preconception Peer Educators training March 4, 2016 from 3 pm to 9 pm through March 5, 2016 from 9 am to 3 pm.
This inaugural Preconception Peer Educator conference will provide tools and training materials needed to educate your campus and surrounding communities on preconception health and infant mortality. Join your peers to meet each other and learn together as we 1) raise preconception health awareness for both men and women; 2) recruit peer educators and advisors for YOUR campus program; and 3) participate in activities on how to be a successful PPE! Our keynote address, “Disparity in African American Communities”, will be given by Dr. Arthur James, OB/GYN and Associate Professor from The Ohio State University, Wexner Medical Center. The Preconception Peer Education for a Healthy Life Plan program is funded by Texas Healthy Babies initiative with the Texas Department of State Health Services.
