Training and Posted Webinars

5-2-1-0 Maternal and Child Health Toolkit

On June 29, 2020, Iowa HHS, Blank Children’s Hospital and Dr. Jennifer Groos partnered to host a webinar called “Introduction to the 5-2-1-0 Healthy Habits Toolkit for Maternal and Child Health Care Providers”. The goal of the training was to enable healthcare professionals to enhance their knowledge and skills in promoting healthy lifestyle habits promoted in the toolkit to pregnant women and families with young children. The toolkit was recently revised to include information for pregnant women and infants and children aged 0-2 that wasn’t previously included. The project was funded by the Children’s Healthy Weight CoIIN grant through the Association of State Public Health Nutritionists (ASPHN) and Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Speakers included Dr. Groos, 5-2-1-0 Health Care Lead, Nicole Newman, RD, LD, and Stephanie Trusty, RN.
