Populations in isolated Indian Health Service (IHS) regions and Appalachian counties have disproportionately worse MCH outcomes than national averages. Public health professionals serving these populations have identified the need for training in MCH epidemiology.

The University of Arizona, Mel & Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health, in collaboration with the University of Kentucky College of Public Health, has developed a graduate certificate that addresses this need. Faculty from both Universities have worked with representatives of IHS, the United South and Eastern Tribes (USET), and MCH providers in rural, underserved counties of the southeast and Appalachian Kentucky to develop and implement a 15-credit graduate certificate in MCH epidemiology that will be offered entirely online.

This certificate program is aimed at increasing the capacity in MCH Epidemiology for professionals serving in rural and/or underserved Indian Health Service Regions and Appalachian Counties.
