Whether a Member of Congress, a state legislator or a city council member, it is essential for policy-makers and elected leaders to know that these type of supports and services not only save lives but also save billions of dollars in health care costs. NHSA encourages all members, consumers, and friends of Healthy Start to educate elected officials about the necessity of the Federal Healthy Start Initiative.

Prenatal Genetic Testing
My name is Katherine Brown and I am the summer intern here NHSA. I have an interest in the genetic field, specifically with the prenatal aspect and advocating for prenatal screening/testing, which all relate to what we promote and advocate here at NHSA.
Join NHSA in its efforts to promote the development of MCH programs and increase awareness to the issues of infant mortality, low birthweight and disparities in perinatal health. NHSA members are composed of Healthy Start project directors, maternal and child health professionals, social workers, health care providers, community and outreach workers and other individuals concerned about the well-being of women and children.
