Partnering to Improve Access to High Quality Health Care for Children and Families

The Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Section within New Hampshire’s Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Public Health Services, Bureau of Community Health Services has been a long-standing partner with the NH-ME LEND Program. 

Under the leadership of Rhonda Siegel, M.Ed. MCH Director, MCH programs strive to improve the health status of mothers, infants, and children, including children with special health care needs regardless of an individual’s ability to pay. Programs such as Early Hearing Detection and Intervention and Home Visiting New Hampshire provide leadership opportunities for LEND trainees.  This year, a trainee is developing content and sample posts for social media on multiple platforms with the goal of reducing stigma and increasing awareness of home visiting and other family support programs in New Hampshire.  Home visiting provides valuable supports and resources to support families, including those affected by substance use.
