Spotlight on Perinatal Quality Collaboratives
State Perinatal Quality Collaboratives (PQCs) are networks of perinatal care providers and public health professionals working to improve pregnancy outcomes for women and newborns.Many states have active collaboratives, and others are in development. To assist states starting or growing their own collaboratives, CDC worked with statewide PQCs in California, New York, and Ohio to sponsor a series of Webinars. Learn more about these networks’ efforts and how you can access the archived webinars on CDC TRAIN.
