Maternal Child Health Project

Watch Dr. Rauner's presentation on the state of child health in Nebraska.

The Maternal Child Health project is an initiative begun in Lincoln in coordination with pediatric and maternal healthcare providers in the city to focus on improving the quality of healthcare provided to children and pregnant women in the city through ongoing quality improvement projects with local healthcare clinics. The project is now expanding to other communities to increase access to quality prenatal care in these communities to help reduce the rates of preterm birth and other maternal/neonatal complications. Read more about the project.
