CPCQC is pleased to announce we are offering scholarships for the 2023 Annual Maternal and Infant Care Quality Conference <https://cpcqc.org/events/annual-conference/&gt; on May 12 in Aurora, Colorado, and we need your help to spread the news! As a key partner in improving maternal and infant outcomes in our state, we hope you will share this information with your partners and networks.

The scholarships are intended to bring new voices to the statewide effort to improve maternal and infant health outcomes, reduce barriers to attending the conference, and spark interest in engagement in activities of CPCQC and related initiatives. If you have partners or colleagues who would like to attend the conference and might be eligible to receive a scholarship, please share the information and application link below.

Who is eligible: Individuals working in hospitals, outpatient practices, health systems, government agencies, community based organizations, payer programs, research/educational institutions, or related sectors that are seeking to improve maternal and infant health outcomes in Colorado, and people with lived expertise who are interested in engaging in policy, advocacy or systems change efforts. Priority will be given to those working in organizations that are not currently engaged in CPCQC programs, individuals from rural communities, students, and those who come from BIPOC or other underrepresented communities.

Scholarships provide: Up to two nights of lodging for those living outside of the Denver metro area (more than 100 miles from the conference), complimentary conference registration and meals included during the conference.

How to apply: Complete this brief application to be considered for a scholarship. Apply by April 7 for priority review. Applicants will be notified by mid-April.

Questions? If you have any questions please contact event coordinator Marqita Jones at mjones@cpcqc.org.
