How to Evaluate Public Health Programs
The purpose of this workshop is to equip public health professionals, particularly those working at the local and/or community level, with the essential knowledge and skills needed to evaluate public health programs. In a time of budgetary constraints and increased expectations of accountability for public health programs, it is vital that we develop measurable performance outcomes, implement evidence-based strategies, and effectively evaluate the impact of programs. In this workshop, we will utilize the steps and standards of the CDC Framework for Program Evaluation as a systematic process to conducting evaluations. The workshop focuses on applied evaluation and not evaluative research methods. Small group sessions are part of the workshop. Participants will learn about logic models, with special attention to the assumptions and contextual factors of a program, and the associated inputs, activities, outputs and outcomes. Different types of evaluations will be presented (e.g., formative, process, impact, outcome) as well as quantitative/qualitative methods that use both primary and secondary (e.g., vital records; census data; other administrative data sources) data sources. The importance of engaging stakeholders throughout the evaluation process and clearly disseminating findings to diverse audiences will also be discussed. The Best Babies Zone Initiative - a multi-level, community-based program that aims to improve birth outcomes by addressing the social determinants that influence health - will be used as a case study where participants will have the opportunity to work in groups and apply each step of the evaluation process. Finally, this workshop will highlight the role of evaluation in maintaining accreditation and how evaluation is incorporated into the overall quality improvement process. Potential pitfalls, challenges and tips to conducting program evaluation in public health will also be addressed. The instructors have many years’ experience conducting workshops on program evaluation, performance measurement, and evidence-based public health, using principles of adult learning, as well as baking brownies. Homemade baked goods will be served.

Economics of Public Health Programs
In a time of budgetary constraint for public health programs, which is essential to show the stakeholders the economic value of public health programs and interventions. In this workshop, the presenter will describe three types of economic analysis in public health: 1) cost analysis, which estimates the cost of a program; 2) cost of illness, which describes the cost being prevented if a disease or condition is eliminated; and 3) economic evaluation, which balances costs and benefits of a program, including cost-effectiveness analysis, cost benefit analysis and budgetary impact/return-on-investment analysis. The presenter will explain the terms commonly used in different types of economic analysis, the situation in which each method is best applicable, and the value of the information to the stakeholders. The presenter will provide examples in maternal and child health and chronic disease prevention and control, and share several tools developed for states and payers to use to facilitate funding/reimbursement decisions.

Trauma Response and Recovery: A Public Health Approach to Community Violence
The Boston Public Health Commission conducted a community assessment process from May through July, 2016 that engaged over 350 individuals, including youth, parents, and providers, through 14 listening sessions, across 5 Boston neighborhoods. Several key themes emerged during this process, demonstrating a clear need to strengthen the city’s capacity to address trauma across the following domains:
· Seamless and consistent coordination among City and community providers supporting impacted families and communities across the response continuum.
· Provision of basic need resources and specific behavioral health service interventions that are trauma-informed and culturally-appropriate to support individuals, families and communities impacted by violence.
· Access to information and, as needed, referral services for the broader community.
· Opportunities for ongoing care and support that could continue (or start) long after an event has taken place.
The results of the engagement process informed the development of a Request for Proposal (RFP) and the subsequent funding of five (5) Neighborhood Trauma Teams in Dorchester, Mattapan, Roxbury, East Boston and Jamaica Plain and one (1) Mobile Trauma Team.
Each Neighborhood Trauma Team is made up of a community healthcare provider and a neighborhood organization working in collaboration to offer a continuum of support services to individuals, families and communities impacted by community violence. The Mobile Trauma Team serves as backup to the Neighborhood Trauma Teams when needed and provides trauma services to those areas that do not have a designated local team. The mobile team also operates a citywide hotline for trauma services, staffed 24/7 and 365 days per year, with staff able to respond within 30 minutes of notification. Together the Neighborhood Trauma Teams and the Mobile Trauma Team are able to respond effectively to individual and community needs following a traumatic event, by providing:
1) Rapid in-home or community-based services for survivors of violence and their family members,
2) Prompt responses that include attending to the whole neighborhood, and
3) Ensuring residents are connected to long-term supportive services.
The Neighborhood Trauma Team and Mobile Trauma Team function as part of a larger city system of services that partners at all time points with Boston Public Health Commission, the Boston Police Department (BPD), Boston Centers for Youth and Families (BCYF), hospitals and other community-based organizations in an effort to support a more even and comprehensive system of care for individuals, families and communities impacted by violence.
At the end of this workshop participants will be able to:
1. Describe key elements of the Boston Neighborhood Trauma Team Initiative.
2. Identify the importance of community in trauma services.
3. Articulate lessons learned from the first year of a citywide trauma response and recovery system.

Public health approaches to address the opioid epidemic: Cross-sector state-local collaboration in maternal and child health
The Association of Maternal & Child Health Programs (AMCHP) and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) are working independently and collaboratively to raise awareness about the opioid epidemic through multi-faceted approaches. The 2017 ASTHO Presidential Challenge is focused on substance misuse through a prevention framework, emphasizing strategies such as increasing protective factors and reducing risk factors in communities, strengthening multi-sectoral collaboration, and reducing stigma and social norms. ASTHO developed a multi-sectoral partnership framework for discussing substance use strategies across diverse partners like state health agencies, Medicaid, providers, law enforcement, and others. Both AMCHP and ASTHO are developing resources, including a joint webinar, and providing technical assistance to states. These efforts continue to raise awareness on an issue that plagues the well-being of communities and families throughout the U.S. This session at CityMatCH will highlight our continued efforts in this area and feature state public health or Title V programs to discuss their approach in dealing with the epidemic. ASTHO will share the partnership framework with participants. Evaluation data, resources, or feedback received from Title V programs and State Health Officials will be shared with the audience. A state Title V Director (TBD) will present on state-local collaborations to prevent drug-exposed pregnancies and neonatal abstinence syndrome. The presenters will lead participants in groups to discuss vignettes of at risk populations to identify opportunities for program integration and multi-sector state/local partnerships.

Introducing the Local Reproductive Freedom Index: Advancing Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice in Cities & Counties
While reproductive freedom is a hot topic at the state and federal policy levels, the many ways that localities can advance access to reproductive health care, including abortion, and support thriving families are often left out of the conversation. The National Institute for Reproductive Health’s Local Reproductive Freedom Index (Local Index) aims to change that by analyzing the policies and practices of 40 cities and counties across the country and highlighting the vital role our communities play in this ongoing public health challenge. The Local Index measures important issues such as access to abortion clinics, confidential reproductive health care and comprehensive sexuality education for young people, support for families, and ways local officials, including health departments, can take a stand on state and federal policy. Using a vision for a model city that is linked with sample policy ideas and real-life examples, the session will help local health department staff and advocates think about ways to raise their locality’s score. Two local-level advocates will discuss how reproductive freedom informs their work in their communities of Philadelphia and New Orleans as models for attendees, who will have an opportunity to share the reproductive freedom work they are already engaged in in their communities, reflect on local reproductive health, rights, and justice challenges they are currently facing, and brainstorm ways they can use the Local Index to inspire new interest and ideas.

Natural Experiment Designs
Randomized controlled trials are often considered the gold standard to establish the relationship between exposure and the outcome; however they are costly and the results may not be generalizable to real world scenarios. Natural experimental designs are an alternative way to rigorously evaluate the impact of population level policies and programs on health outcomes, health care utilization, and cost. The purpose of this course is to teach public health professionals how to evaluate the impact of population level interventions, using existing observational data. This session will focus on two commonly used types of natural experimental design methods: difference-in-difference (DID) model, and interrupted time series (ITS) model.

Building US Capacity to Review and Prevent Maternal Deaths - the Role of Maternal Mortality Review Committees
Recent publications suggest increases of the US maternal mortality rate, but also indicate that part of this increase is attributable to changes in case identification based on death certificate data. US maternal mortality review committees (MMRCs) improve identification of pregnancy-associated deaths by utilizing multiple sources for identifying cases. Their multidisciplinary review approach supports determination of preventability, critical factors, and systems change recommendations. This session will introduce maternal mortality surveillance in the US, outline key findings, and describe changes instituted in response to MMRC recommendations. Speakers will include national, state, and community-based perspectives, and will address the need for collaborative approaches and community engagement.

Providing a comprehensive and wholistic approach to your work with men and fathers
Men’s health is a critical thread to any work involving men and fathers and if you want to be effective in providing services that meet the needs of men, then your program will need to focus on health issues impacting the lives of men. This workshop offering will explore ways to insert men’s health component into your current services. The workshop will also offer tools to help access men’s health. No one program can offer all of the services that may need to be in place to meet his needs, so time will be spent on how to develop partnership with agencies and organizations that provide needed services. If you are interested is providing a comprehensive and wholistic approach to your work with men and fathers, this workshop has been designed for you.

Confronting Urban Environmental Hazards to the MCH Population
Join local-level experts as they describe environmental exposures during childhood, prevention opportunities, and new ways to frame this critical urban health issue. Gerri Perry-Williams, former MCAH Director and Childhood Lead Prevention Program Coordinator at the City of Pasadena Public Health Department and CityMatCH Board Member-At-Large, will discuss childhood exposures to environmental toxins. Ms. Perry-Williams will provide information and tools to help participants look at various unsuspected hazards and discuss the upstream approaches to preventing exposure in the MCH population. Elizabeth Shockley, Memphis local and Manager of the Childhood Lead Program at the Shelby County Health Department, will highlight the development, implementation, and findings of the Memphis Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program which is “committed to eliminating lead poisoning throughout Shelby County.” Dr. Deborah Allen, CityMatCH Board Chair and Director of the Bureau of Child, Adolescent and Family Health at Boston Public Health Commission, will moderate the session and provide new findings and national context and frame that will allow session participants to walk away with a new way of describing continued need for environmental justice for our youngest community members.

Standardized screening tools are changing the way we do business
Adding standardized screening tools to a program can be an extra burden, but as we will see in this session, they can be valuable tools for making sure the right people receive services, they receive the right services, and they benefit from those services. Most programs use intake forms and screening tools to help determine what risks their clients face and what services they might need. The recent movement to standardize screening tools for Federal Healthy Start sites was preceded by the adoption of a Florida Healthy Start screening tool for universal screening of pregnant women in Florida several years ago. The three presentations in this session will describe the benefits standard screening tools have for the organizations that adopt them and the clients they serve. Attendees will learn how communities use screening tools for client referral & tracking, and the added benefits of standardization for reporting, quality improvement, and defining comparison groups in program evaluation. The session will showcase the Healthy Start EPIC Center website as a resource to all MCH programs for screening tools and more.

Healthy Start and Fetal and Infant Mortality Review Collaboration
Fetal and Infant Mortality Review (FIMR) has a long history of working collaboratively with Healthy Start. The FIMR approach involves discussion by multidisciplinary teams about fetal and infant death cases in the community and the identification of associated health and related service and system problems. Fetal Infant Mortality Review has a presence in 29 states, with 175 local programs, and often includes maternal/family interviews to help teams understand, among other things, mothers’/families’ experiences of racism and how those experiences may have impacted maternal and child outcomes. FIMR is an important public health tool that can provide qualitative information missing from vital statistics and other population data routinely collected by states and cities. This session will explore how Fetal and Infant Mortality Review (FIMR) programs work to understand health care systems and social problems that contribute to fetal, infant, and child deaths and to identify implement prevention interventions to improve the lives of some of our most vulnerable women, infants, children, and families. Along with the Healthy Start model of multiagency participation through the CAN, the FIMR approach uses an Equity lens while conducting fatality review which is a step toward reducing inequities in these vital health outcomes.

United Health Foundation Panel: Leveraging Data to Drive Effective Community-based Health Interventions
Across the maternal and child health space, data is both shaping how local maternal and child health programs are implemented, as well as contributing to ongoing assessments of interventions at the community level. This panel will focus on how community-based health interventions have been informed and enhanced by greater access to aggregated and/or localized data, including data from United Health Foundation’s America’s Health Rankings® Health of Women and Children Report – a comprehensive assessment of women, infant, and children’s health that includes outcomes, risk factors, and associated social and economic indicators reported at the state level – as well as others in the maternal and child health field.

March of Dimes (National) will discuss how the organization uses data to inform prematurity researchers through its PeriStats program and develop annual state-level premature birth report cards, which are used by health departments to implement changes in their states, and inform interventions such as its prenatal care programs.

CelebrateOne (Columbus, Ohio) will comment on how the organization is using geographic analyses to identify hot spots in Columbus for infant mortality and deploy resources to those communities.

Medical College of Wisconsin (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) will discuss the Periscope (PERInatalSpecialty COnsult Psychiatry Extension) Project, which aims to provide real-time provider-to-provider teleconsultation services, education and community resource information to health care professionals to assist them with their care management for new and expectant mothers across southeast Wisconsin. The project takes a targeted approach to reach the most vulnerable patients by connecting primary care providers to perinatal psychiatric experts to build their capacity to treat and manage care for women with mental health and substance use conditions.

Nashville Metro Public Health Department (Nashville, Tennessee) will describe how the health department is using data to drive population health improvements and perspective on what additional insights are needed to improve health, as well as talk about the value that tools such as America’s Health Rankings® provide in building healthier communities.

Community Service
We invite all conference participants to join us Tuesday evening!

The Community Service Project provides an opportunity for conference attendees to learn about the conference host city and contribute to a service project prioritized by the host community. The 2017 Community Service Project will serve to highlight the power of community-driven cross sector collaborations focused on the intersection between health and education (literacy) and infant vitality (infant safe sleep). The Service Project will benefit the following: 1). Project Lit Community; 2). MPHD Infant Vitality Initiatives, and; 3). Families affected by Hurricane Harvey in Houston, TX. Project Lit Community strives to eliminate book deserts by retrofitting newsstands with mini-libraries and distributing them in neighborhoods where bookstores and libraries are not available. Conference attendees will be able to support one or all 3 of the following opportunities:

1.Literacy – Prepare bags of community library book donations
a.Books are diverse in representation of culture as children are more likely to enjoy reading when they can see themselves in the story they are reading;
b.Books will be donated to Project Lit Community;
c.Community library donation and preparation goal: At least 300 books will be bundled for community libraries.

2.Infant Safe Sleep – Prepare infant safe sleep kits for families supported by home-visiting programs and Newborn Outreach in Nashville/Davidson County.
a.Infant Safe Sleep kits consist of sleep sacks, onesies, pacifier, safe sleep books, nightlight, burp cloth, a hand written note and referral for pack-n-play/travel bassinet
b.Infant Safe Sleep kit preparation goal: At least 500 kits will be assembled and distributed for use in the home-visiting services through the Davidson County Central Referral System.

3.Diaper Drive – Prepare diaper bundles to be donated to the Houston Health Department for families with infants affected by Hurricane Harvey.
