A goal of the annual EHDI Conference is to help each state improve their EHDI system. The presentations and posters provide participants with ideas about effective practices and information related to each component of EHDI. To help people use this information more effectively to improve their EHDI system when they return home, time has been set aside for two State Team Meetings (one at the beginning and one at the end of the meeting). These meetings provide a structure and support for attendees at the Conference who are from the same state to work together to improve their state EHDI program. During these meetings participants from a given state will meet as a group to:

  • Identify the strengths and weaknesses of their current EHDI system.
  • Develop and implement a plan for how members of their team can maximize the information gathered at the 2009 National EHDI Conference.
  • Develop a written action plan for the team and for individual members to be implemented during the next 12 months.
