The Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Bureau, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will fund the Hawaii LEND Program for another 5 years!
The Hawaii MCH LEND prepares health professionals for leadership roles to improve supports and services for children with special health needs and their family members. Children with special health care needs (CSHCN) are children with disabilities or those at risk of neurodevelopmental delays, including intellectual and developmental disabilities (formerly known as mental retardation), multiple handicaps, and other chronic illnesses and/or health conditions. The Hawaii MCH LEND Program is a part of a National Network of maternal-child health leadership education training programs in neurodevelopmental disabilities.
