Council for Perinatal Health
***THIS PROGRAM IS NO LONGER ACTIVE***
The Council for Perinatal Health was founded in 1994 to facilitate system wide program policy, decision-making, and clinical interventions to improve perinatal outcomes in Contra Costa County. The Council is a collaborative effort of the following Contra Costa Health Services program and divisions: Family, Maternal and Child Health Programs; Contra Costa Health Plan; Community Health Assessment, Planning & Evaluation; and Alcohol & Other Drug Services.
Our goal is to promote and improve perinatal health in Contra Costa County.
The Council sponsors forums twice a year for multidisciplinary providers throughout Contra Costa County. These forums offer opportunities for providers to network, share resources, and become more informed on various issues that impact perinatal outcomes. A diverse range of topics have been presented at the forum including:
- Perinatal HIV/AIDS
- Domestic Violence
- Cultural Diversity
- Healing the Healers
- Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome
- Managed Care
- Closing Racial Disparity Gaps
