IHR’s Moms Do Care Project: Successful Outcomes

Dear IHR Friends and Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce the recent publication of an article about IHR's Moms Do Care Project and its successful outcomes! The article is available to read or download at springer.com. This project has been building capacity throughout Massachusetts since 2015, in health centers and other medical settings, offering providers who serve pregnant and postpartum people affected by substance use disorder expert training, technical assistance, and other resources. Working closely with DPH, Moms Do Care has also highlighted the importance of peer recovery coaching, as well as the need for ongoing training and support including addressing compassion fatigue among providers.

Please join me in congratulating Moms Do Care Director Laura Sternberger and her staff on this accomplishment!

Thank you so much.
