MATERNAL AND CHILD HEALTH CONSORTIUM OF CHESTER COUNTY
March 31, 2011
I have been a board member for 3 years. I am an OB/GYN nurse practitioner & have seen firsthand how important it is for women of childbearing age & their families to have invaluable support, both medically & psychosocially, during a childbearing experience. MCHC provides outstanding care for such families in Chester County. Their work is aboslutely vital to the communities they serve. One only has to look at the statistics about the birth weights of the infants born to the women who have participated in MCHC's programs to know that their efforts DO indeed work. The services MCHC provides families after their babies are born, such as the Family Center, directly support their mission of children starting healthy, staying healthy and succeeding in school. The staff is very dedicated to the community, working diligently to ensure the participants have the best outcomes possible.

Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
provide ways for MCHC to have more recognition for all the hard work they do!
