Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The Pride in Parenting Training Curriculum was developed by a transdisciplinary team of professionals as part of a community-based research project of the National Institutes of Health-District of Columbia Initiative to Reduce Infant Mortality in Minority Populations. The 25-unit training program has been used to train lay home visitors to deliver a home visiting curriculum focused on effective use of health care services and improved infant development. The curriculum is a valuable resource for the preparation of paraprofessionals who can address the needs of mothers and infants in an integrated manner.
