Maine’s Maternal and Child Health and Substance Exposed Infant Virtual Conference 2022 offers two days of inspiring presentations along with educational and networking opportunities related to maternal and child health, with focused attention on substance exposed infants and families living with substance use disorder.
Participants will gain knowledge about current national and local maternal and child health trends along with strategies and ideas about how to optimize maternal and child health engagement, promote education and cultivate connections and resources within your community.
