The Virtual Convening

Every year, Missouri’s community partners gather in one place to make real-world change and build connections to better serve women and infants. The annual Maternal and Infant Health Convening is a core part of The Uplift Connection’s purpose to serve as a hub, convene thought leaders, build awareness of regional and local efforts, and connect maternal and infant stakeholders and work across the state.



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 2021 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.
