HMA Helps Produce Strong Start Annual Report

HMA’s Jennifer Edwards, Sharon Silow-Carroll and Diana Rodin are part of a team that prepared the Year 1 annual report for the Strong Start for Mothers and Newborns initiative.

The Strong Start initiative, funded by the Affordable Care Act, was designed to improve maternal and infant outcomes for pregnancies covered by Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
