Dear Home Visiting Professional,

Greetings from the Arizona Department of Health Services. It is my honor to welcome you to the 2018 Strong Families AZ Home Visiting Conference: Sharing Knowledge-Improving Practice. You will notice ignificant changes in the conference format this year. We begin with Community of Practice sessions that look to both scientific evidence and the experience of home visitors to address two of the most compelling issues in home visiting Perinatal Mood Disorders and Well Child Care. You will be called upon to share your knowledge with peers and strategize together how home visitors can improve practice in these critical areas.

Workshops this year are based on the feedback we have received from home visitors and include Motivational Interviewing, Home Visitor Safety, Nutrition and Physical Activity for families, Grandparents as Parents and Mental Health First Aid. We have intentionally structured the entire conference experience to provide you with the opportunity to share, learn and grow as a professional. Jean Steel, the closing keynote will make you laugh and help you adopt ways to cope with a busy life, and even grow as well.

We want to thank our conference sponsors for supporting this conference. We also want to thank the state agencies and more than sixty organizations statewide that comprise the Strong Families AZ Interagency Leadership Team and the Strong Families AZ Home Visiting Alliance. Through partnership and collective action, these groups have built a network of quality services that changes the trajectory of children's lives every day.

Thank you for attending the conference and investing time in your professional growth. At the core of all the success, we celebrate the home visitors who work tirelessly to improve the lives of young families.



Sincerely,

Cara M. Christ, M.D.
Director
Arizona Department of Health Services

  • If you use a debit card to reserve or pay for your room and incidentals, please take note of the following: Most hotels will put an authorization hold for a minimum of $75.00 on your debit or credit card per night of your reservation to accommodate charges you may wish to make against your sleeping room. This only applies to overnight guests. If you charge services, food and beverage, etc. to your room, the front desk will show you the charges at check out. You are always welcome to remove the charges from the credit card and pay cash upon departure. Note that it may take up to 7-10 days to clear the authorization hold from your credit card.
