The Kempe Summer Institute is recruiting students for its 2019 session August 5-9. Funded for five years by NICHD, we are building on our pilot work over the past two years to establish our courses. We have received great reviews from participants, made refinements, and are eager to recruit our new classes for this summer. We would appreciate your help. There are scholarships available on a competitive basis. See: https://registrations.pub
The courses run simultaneously over one week, so students may take only one. Those interested in graduate credit may obtain one credit from the Colorado School of Public Health.

The Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing is seeking stakeholder feedback via this short survey to inform the Department’s proposal for the Maternal Opioid Misuse (MOM) Model.
The Department is in the process of applying for the MOM Model from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation. This cooperative agreement provides funding opportunities for selected state Medicaid agencies to test whether payments that support evidence-based, coordinated care delivery for pregnant and postpartum women with opioid use disorder and their infants can reduce Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program expenditures, and improve the quality of care for this population.
The group identified an initial list of potential interventions that will be shared with the larger group and other interested stakeholders through a survey as a way of prioritizing interventions.
In addition, the survey will seek to understand the work you are already doing (or that you’ve heard about) related to maternal opioid use in Colorado and what data or metrics you might have that could support the application and work.
Please take a moment to respond to this survey and feel free to share with other partners. We are seeking to have all responses by Friday 4/12 by 5 PM.
In additional to sharing your expertise, please feel empowered to pass along this survey to others with key perspectives on maternal opioid use.
Please contact Susanna Snyder (email@example.com) with any questions.

|New CDC Widget to Help States Select Strategies to Reduce Injuries from Motor Vehicle Crashes|
Every day, more than 100 people die in motor vehicle crashes and thousands more are injured. The economic impact is notable: in 2015, the cost of medical care and productivity losses associated with occupant injuries and deaths from motor vehicle traffic crashes exceeded $63 billion.
More can be done to prevent crashes and reduce injuries. State-level changes are especially effective. CDC is releasing a widget in support of the Motor Vehicle Prioritizing Interventions and Cost Calculator for States (MV PICCS 3.0), a free interactive calculator that helps states and state decision makers prioritize and select from 14 effective motor vehicle injury prevention strategies.
The MV PICCS widget provides each state with:
