We are thrilled to announce that our long-awaited, much-needed, new and improved website has officially launched! It can be reached at womenshealth.tulane.edu. On the website, you can learn more about the Mary Amelia Women’s Center, our history, and our staff. We are also pleased to finally have a place to properly acknowledge all of our affiliate faculty and community partners. Strong partnerships are the driving force for much of the work we do, and we are thankful for the important contributions of the people and organizations listed on these pages. We also use the new website to highlight some of the exciting work we do. We divide our programs into two categories: interdisciplinary research and outreach and advocacy. We are equally enthusiastic about our website’s News section, where readers can find current news articles and scholarly articles relating to women’s health.
One of the main reasons we decided to redo our website was that we needed a place to house our Knowledge to Practice tutorials. The Knowledge to Practice program focuses on enhancing the leadership knowledge and skills of public health professionals through the development of community-appropriate health promotion programs and the establishment of a support network for information and resource sharing. Four concentration areas were developed based on training needs identified in the Association of MCH Programs (AMCHP) Workforce Assessment Survey, as well as the MCH Training Strategic Plan and the HRSA Priorities. The four areas include 1) health communication, 2) valuing diversity, 3) data-driven and evidence-based program development, and 4) building and sustaining community partnerships. In addition to the online tutorials, there are also downloadable PDF versions of the tutorials available as well as toolkits with quizzes and extra activities. It is our hope that our community partners and other health organizations will use these tutorials and toolkits as staff trainings.
Please be sure to check out our new website and take advantage of the many resources we now have available!
