Foster Care Learning Collaborative Opportunity

Do you serve children and youth in foster care?
Do you encounter barriers to care for children in foster care?
Do you want to network locally with others in the foster care community?
Would you like to improve health outcomes for the children in foster care that you serve?

Join the conversation!

The Michigan Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (MIAAP), in partnership with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), will host a Learning Collaborative in your area soon! Check the listing below and RSVP!

We will focus on concrete ways to improve health outcomes for children and youth in foster care. Walk away with tools to:

• Improve coordination and continuity of care between Primary Care, MDHHS, mental health and oral health communities

• Address barriers to care coordination and management for children in the foster care system in your county

• Better understand state policy requirements and its impact on you and how you do your job

This peer-to-peer learning opportunity WORKS and has been successfully implemented in Kalamazoo, Macomb and Isabella counties! Contact Sierra Cameron at or 517-484-3013 for details!
