In honor of National Birth Defects Prevention Month, CDC Learning Connection features the Perinatal Quality Collaboratives (PQC’s). 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. CDC worked with statewide PQCs to develop a series of webinars focused on specific quality improvement initiatives. Access the no-cost webinars and earn free continuing education.
