Technical Assistance On the Road: Chapters 5, 6 and 7

May has been a busy month for the Child Fatality Prevention System. We have been busy planning for the upcoming Coordinator Training in June, writing our annual legislative report and providing technical assistance to the local teams. 
Here are some highlights from my May travels:

Trip to Pitkin County

Aspen is beautiful in the Spring with its snowy mountain peaks and green valleys; I was happy to visit at such a lovely time of year. Liz Stark, Pitkin County Public Health Director and Child Fatality Prevention Coordinator, welcomed me to her first CFR team meeting. The team discussed meeting structure/ logistics and practiced reviewing a case from their county. Liz and her team did a great job with the process.

Trip to Grand County 

Just when we though we were in the clear, mother nature threw us a snowball. Brene Belew-LaDue, Grand County Public Health Director and Child Fatality Prevention Coordinator, had invited me to attend Grand County's first CFR Meeting. As such, I got up early and braved the snowy roads to participate in this meeting. The team discussed meeting structure/ logistics and practiced reviewing a case from their county. Excellent discussion!

 Trip to Clear Creek County



Crystal Brandt, Clear Creek County Public Health Director and Child Fatality Prevention Coordinator, invited me to her second CFR planning meeting. The team was fully formed and eager to take on their new responsibilities. We discussed meeting structure/ logistics while enjoying a hearty meal at Tommyknockers. The team has set up their next meeting date for later in the summer to practice their first case. I look forward to visiting this team again soon!
