The mission of New Hampshire-Maine Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (NH-ME LEND) is to prepare leaders to enter the field of maternal and child health (MCH) in order to improve the lives of children with neurodevelopmental disabilities and their families, with particular attention to the needs of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). NH-ME LEND aims to increase the numbers of leaders in the MCH workforce, increase the leadership capacity of the workforce, and address health disparities in our region through high quality interdisciplinary training.
