1st Five Educational Webinars for Primary Care Providers

CHSC offers free, lunch and learn webinars each month to support Iowa's 1st Five Healthy Mental Development Initiative. The purpose of this education series is to help providers and their staff better identify and treat developmental delays in children, assess family risk factors, and refer to a 1st Five team to meet the family's needs. CME and CEU credits can be awarded to primary care providers in 1st Five counties in cooperations with the University of Iowa College of Nursing and Carver College of Medicine. Listed below are the dates and topics for upcoming webinars. Recordings of archived webinars are also available here.
