Maternal and Child Health Social Committee
The mission of the Maternal and Child Health Social Committee (MCHSC) is to enhance the experience of students in the Maternal and Child Health Program (MCHP) at UIC SPH by providing a safe space for conversation and encouraging informal relationships with other students, faculty, and staff of the MCH program.
Every student enrolled in the Maternal and Child Health Program at UIC SPH is a member of the MCHSC. This inclusive enrollment allows students to attend planning meetings and events. The Committee serves students in both cohorts at any one time, thereby fusing the two separate groups of students into one. Because the MCHSC involves both cohorts of students, the second-year cohort of students is able to guide the first-year cohort of students through their academic career here at UIC SPH. Upon graduation, first-year students become the new “leaders” of the Committee, which allows for an easy transition between cohorts of students.
The MCHSC meets once a month to plan the next monthly MCH social event. The events are open to all MCH students at UIC SPH regardless of their participation in the MCHSC planning meetings.
A sample of past MCHSC events include:
MCH Mentorship Program
FIRST-YEARS: Unsure about practicum expectations or going about finding a practicum site? Not sure if you should take a certain required MCH course next semester or next year? Sign up for the MCH Mentorship Program and be paired with someone who can share the wisdom they've gained over the last year and help you navigate the system!
If you are a UIC MCH student interested in joining the MCHSC or signing up for the MCH Mentorship Program, please contact Amanda Giese, MCHP Graduate Assistant and MCHSC Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
