CCHC holds Fall Update
Child Care Health Consultation recently held its annual Fall Update at 805 Newtown Circle.
Catherine Lowe, Holly Clendenin and Allison Evans hosted Child Care Health Consultation’s (CCHC) Fall Update Sept. 19-20 at 805B Newtown Circle.
Tal Curry, CCHC program administrator from the Department of Public Health, and Angela Fultz, Eastern Kentucky University, facilitated part of the update by providing the latest CCHC news. Consultants were trained on data entry techniques and given highlights about recent changes to Child Care Aware and Kentucky’s Child Care Resource and Referral System.
The update was also packed full of education and collaboration among consultants. Dr. Evelyn Knight, University of Kentucky, presented findings from her CCHC research. Among her findings were that CCHC:
• provides appropriate trainings of high value,
• advocates for child care providers and
• offers personal relationships to child care providers with consultants as mentors.
Later, Dr. Melanie Tyner-Wilson updated consultants on child passenger and car seat safety. To end the update, Pediatrician Dr. Susan Pollack spoke with the consultants about the latest information on influenza and pertussis vaccinations.
