THE MICHIGAN HEALTHY START FATHERHOOD PROGRAM: STRATEGIES TO ENGAGE FATHERS IN SOCIAL WORK PRACTICE
November 18, 2020
12:00 - 1:00pm ET
1 Free Online CE Credit Hour
In this webinar, Dr. Shawna J. Lee will describe working with Healthy Start programs throughout the state to develop, implement, and evaluate a father engagement home visitation program. The goal of the father home visitation program was to increase fathers' participation in Healthy Start home visits and to increase fathers' knowledge of infant health and developmental milestones. The Healthy Start program targets low-income mothers in Detroit, Flint, Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, Lansing, and through the Inter-tribal Council of Michigan. The Healthy Start fatherhood program provided father-friendly parent education and home visitation by a fatherhood-focused community health worker.
The webinar will be recorded and shared with all registrants.
