for Change

Every year, Missouri’s community partners gather in one place. For 2020, our convening was a little different. But even virtually, we could still make real-world change and build connections to better serve women and infants.


We hope you were able to join us for this year’s event, Maternal and Infant Health: Collaborative Approaches to Vitality Across the Lifespan. Be sure to sign up for updates to receive information about future programs and events.



Who should attend? 

The Convening is best suited for maternal and infant health providers, stakeholders, and invested community members. That includes, but isn’t limited to:

  • Any community members or providers invested in the health of women and infants

  • Current or previously funded Infant Mortality Reduction Initiative partners

  • FLOURISH members and partners

  • Bootheel Babies & Families members and partners

  • Members of DHSS Women’s Health Council

  • Members of the Maternal Child Learning and Action Network

Why should I attend? 

  • Connect with other community leaders

  • Share your progress and learnings with others

  • Walk away with actionable tools and insights

How much does it cost to attend? 

Our 2020 Convening is provided free of charge thanks to the generosity of our event funders, Missouri Foundation for Health, Missouri Hospital Association, and Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.

Do I need a special program or digital capabilities to attend? 

The Convening will be hosted on Zoom. You can download the program for free and attend via your smartphone, tablet, computer, or other internet-equipped devices. 

I have work I’d love to present. How do I connect with the organizers?

That’s great! Fill out a contact form and someone will reach out about presentation opportunities.
